Evonik at the 22nd Iran International Oil, Gas, Refining and Petrochemicals Exhibition

Evonik, the leading German speciality chemicals company, participates this week at the 22nd Iran International Oil, Gas, Refining and Petrochemicals Exhibition taking place between 6-9 May at the Tehran International Permanent Fairground. The event gathers 2000 companies from 35 countries covering all areas relevant to the energy industry.

“Evonik has been present in Iran for forty eight years and considers the country a key growth market especially in the energy sector where it has 11% of oil and 18% of gas reserves of the world,” says Sassan Pakdel, Business Manager for High Performance Polymers at Evonik Iran.

“Participating in this exhibition shows our commitment as a company to developing and supporting the Iranian energy sector through the various technologies that we offer,” Pakdel added.

While Evonik offers solutions that address different needs in the three energy markets of upstream, midstream and downstream including corrosion inhibitors, additives for drilling and gas processing chemistries, the company highlights at the show one key solution used for gas pipes, liners and steel pipes called VESTAMID® NRG polyamide 12 (PA 12).

VESTAMID® NRG offers outstanding properties suitable for high-pressure gas pipelines that enables gas utilities to effectively build-up their subterranean pipeline networks without any concern about losses in throughput performance.

The product line also combines the established liner technology and the custom-tailored products from Evonik that can be an alternative to corrosion resistant alloy pipes. Unlike corrosion resistant alloy pipes currently used for hydrocarbon transportation and carbon steel pipes, VESTAMID® NRG protects against internal corrosion and offers an enormous weight and price advantage.
