SYRIA - Gas Processing Plants & Their Markets.

Syria's capacity for marketed production of associated and non-associated natural gas has reached almost 22 million cubic metres (MCM) per day, and should rise to more than 22 MCM/day by 2005. This excludes gas reinjected into the oilfields. All of the marketed production is being processed for local consumption, which has increased from about 11 MCM/day in early 1998 as local demand for natural gas is quite strong.

Marketed production and consumption of gas are limited to the operational capacity of Syria's gas processing plants and pipelines. The following are brief profiles of the gas processing plants in Syria and their local markets:

The Deir Ez Zor gas plant, on stream in Sept. 2001, is the largest in Syria with a capacity of 13 MCM/d. It processes almost 5 MCM/d of associated gas from a 180-km gathering system linking 22 oilfields in the north-east (see Gas Market Trends) to feed the Syrian market, plus 8 MCM/d from TotalFinaElf's Tabiyeh gas field before its reinjection into the field's reservoir. The plant produces LPG for the local market and 19,000 b/d of condensate for crude oil blending and export through the Banias terminal.

The plant, the gathering system and related facilities are operated by Conoco, under a service contract between SPC and a Conoco/TotalFinaElf partnership. All these facilities should be run by SPC from Sept. 2005.
