RIPI & IFP Founded on a Basis

 

TEHRAN, July 19 (RIPI) -- Deputy Head of the Technological and International Relations Department of the Research Center of Petroleum Industry (RIPI) Seyed Amir Abbas Hosseini said on Tuesday, July 19, that all the IFP subsidiaries are the focus of the RIPI-IFP Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).

Hosseini said the MoU envisions three fields of upstream, downstream and environment protection.

The RIPI and the IFP were established about 60 years ago in Iran and France on a single basis within a short span of time in order for technological development.

He referred to areas of cooperation between RIPI and the IFP and said the RIPI cooperation in the upstream sector concerns enhanced recovery and technological studies on Yadavaran field. 

In the downstream sector, the IFP group and its subsidiaries will be the RIPI partner in sweetening of gas and removal of water and soil pollutants as well as sewage treatment and water management in the oil industry.

Energy and environment protection are other areas of cooperation between the RIPI and the IFP.

"We hope that in the new atmosphere, education for development of the E&P companies will be in accordance with the new oil contracts and education relating to the oil industries related specialized forces," he concluded.

Iran Poised to Grab Technologies: French Manager

 

 

TEHRAN, Feb. 16 (RIPI) -- The abundance of educated and well-trained engineers is a facet that can ensure rapid development of all industries, particularly the automobile industry, in Iran, said managing director of French company Flex Things, adding the facet makes the country ready to “grab technologies”.

Speaking at an exhibition held on the sidelines of the 9th International Conference on Internal Combustion Engines and Oil Industry in Tehran on Tuesday, Hugues Drion said: “That is a real luck for Iran that they have this knowledge to invent and create things and that is very good for the business.”

He said it is a chance in Iran for foreign firms willing to step in the Iranian market that there are plenty of educated and skilled engineers that can help them conduct projects.

Regarding the transfer of knowledge to Iranian companies now that the international restrictions have been lifted against Iran following the landmark nuclear deal Iran clinched with world powers last July, Drion said Iranian companies do not have to be concerned about having the latest technologies; instead, they “can step to new technologies; you don’t have to invest for the last version of new technologies, but u can invest in the next generation of technologies.”

He said there is plenty of new technologies that Flex Things as well as other foreign firms can implement in Iran and there are a lot of prospects for them.

“I am sure that within the next ten years, if the sanctions are still away, and if everything is released because we have issues about selling software programs in Iran, the business will develop dramatically and I think Iran will be one of the actors in the economy of developing new products,” he added.

He said Flex Things has no partners in the region because “Iran is the only country with so many engineers. It is different from Dubai or Qatar, for example. There are no engineers over there and they only capture the data and capture knowledge from outside and ask for Indian or German or French companies to come in and develop the products for them and what is different here is that you see how much you have developed products even though you have had no support from external companies.”

Iran has held an international conference and exhibition on internal combustion engines and oil industry to woo foreign investments to develop the sector now than international bans on Tehran’s nuclear program have been lifted.

Exhibitors from 700 participants from 10 countries, including Germany, Austria, Netherlands, France, Italy, India, China and South Korea, have attended the conference and presented their latest products on the sidelines of the event.

Beginning on Tuesday, February 16, the three-day event is put together by the Iranian Society of Engine and the Research Institute of Petroleum Industry (RIPI) and is aimed at devising a strategic document on fuel, propulsion and environment in Iran, as well as promotion of oil industry interactions and cooperation with the engine industry. 

Ban-free Iran will become ME Hub of Automobile Industry: FEV

 

 

TEHRAN, Feb. 16 (RIPI) -- Vice president of giant engine provider FEV says Iran could have become the center of automobile industry in the Middle East had the sanctions not prevented the country’s progress in the field.

“Iran could be the center of automobile industry in the Middle East but, due to the sanctions, that has been postponed,” said Michael Wilhelm speaking with RIPI on the sidelines of the 9th International Conference on Internal Combustion Engines and Oil Industry on Tuesday.

However, “we are expecting a lot of projects that are being created here [in Iran],” he said.

The senior German engineer said what is good about Iran in comparison with its neighbors is that in Iran there are “very good educated engineers” and that is one of the most important factors required to push the industry.

He said there is already production facilities and experience with production in Iran so “everything is available for a good industrial development”.

FEV is an engineering consultation company and engineering consultancy company. It is one of the world's largest independent development service providers in the development of engines and vehicle technology with headquarters in Aachen. Clients of FEV are almost all well-known vehicle manufacturers in the world. FEV is owned by the Pischinger family.

They design and develop engines for appliances, cars and commercial vehicles, but also for ships and locomotives - from the sketch to the start.

The firm acts worldwide and offers engineering services for power trains engines and transmission developments, and electronics and technologies required for so called new-energy and electric means and hybrid vehicles.

FEV partnered Iran Khodro to produce EF7 engine which is a 1.7liter, dual fuel engine.

“There is a lot of work to do here in Iran. Iran has very good engineers and have very good facilities for production so everything is available for a very good environment for automotive industry and development activities and since our company supports development of engines, transmission, etc., we look very positive into the future and we are expecting a lot of projects here in Iran where we can provide our services,” Wilhelm said.

With the help of external companies, we can start immediately such projects and it takes a certain amount of time to get the Iranian capabilities ready to act more or completely independent, he said.

He also said another two years is needed for Iran to be back on the level it was before the sanctions.

Iran Holds Conference on Internal Combustion Engines


 

TEHRAN, Feb. 16 (RIPI) --Iran has held aninternational conference and exhibition on internal combustion engines and oilindustry to woo foreign investments to develop the sector now than internationalbans on Tehran’s nuclear program have been lifted.

700 participants from 10 countries, including Germany, Austria, Netherlands, France, Italy, India, Turkey, China and South Korea, attended the conference andpresented their latest products on the sidelines of the event.

Beginning on Tuesday, February 16, the three-day event is puttogether by the Iranian Society of Engine and the Research Institute ofPetroleum Industry (RIPI) and is aimed at devising a strategic document on fuel, propulsion and environment in Iran, as well as promotion of oil industryinteractions and cooperation with the engine industry.  

Besides what needs to be done on production of [conventional] gasoline-based engines, development of gas-based engines for buses and cars, LPG-propulsion and diesel engines for passenger cars is being viewed by theIranian Ministry of Petroleum as a top priority,” said Iranian Minister ofPetroleum Bijan Zangeneh, addressing opening ceremony of the conference.

Hecalled on industrialists to focus their efforts on construction of optimizeddiesel and gas-based engines that can meet international standards for cars andbuses as well as LPG and CNG-burning bus engines.

TheInternational Energy Agency (IAE) has announced that fuel consumption will riseby at least 75% in the transportation sector by 2050 if required measures forcurbing fuel intake of commercial vehicles are not taken when they should, saidZangeneh.

Thepercentage can lower to 20% if efficient internal combustion engines aredeveloped,” he said.

Thesenior energy official added that the expansion of hybrid and electric engineswill help reduce the number of gasoline engines which will lower the growth ofpetrol consumption to only 10% by 2050.

Hesaid plans are under way to expand the gas distribution network in Iran so thatliquid fuels and refined petroleum products are no longer used in thetransportation sector in order to be used for households, industries and powerplants instead.

Likewise, 18,000 buses are planned to be renovated and upgraded toburn natural gas to reduce pollution and consumption of liquid fuels in Iran, hesaid.

Iranconsumes 20mcm/d of compressed natural gas in its transportation sector which isnearly 25% of the fuel consumed by all the cars.

Iranenjoys one of the world’s largest gas distribution networks and nearly 90% ofthe population has access to gas supplies through pipelines. Furthermore, thereare over 3,000 CNG stations across the country.

Zangeneh said LPG must enter the fuel mix of cars inside Iran, adding the LPG output of the country has little use inside the country and if itcannot be used domestically, it will have to be exported which incurs huge costson the country.

TEHRAN, Feb. 5 (RIPI) -- The Research Institute of Petroleum Industry (RIPI) has scheduled a 3-day international conference on February 16-19 on internal combustion engines in oil industry.

The 9th Internal Combustion Engines and Oil Conference is aimed at providing a strategic document for fuel, dynamics and environmental concerns of internal combustion engines.

RIPI and Iran Society of Engine (ISE) have jointly arranged the event which will be mounted at RIPI's conference hall.

Representatives of globally renowned internal combustion engine industries from countries like Germany, Austria, Italy, South Korea and China are scheduled to take part in the conference.

Dr. Ralf Marquard from FEV company will be the keynote speaker of the conference. He will deliver a speech about the future of engines and automobiles in road transportation.

The German scholar will be followed by the representative of Austria's AVL and Germany's Bosch representative Dr. Tizez who will deliver speeches about the development of internal combustion engines, dynamics and diesel technologies based on future environmental considerations.

Biofuels, the strategy of fuel and dynamism in accordance with the principles of the Economy of Resistance, modern and clean fuels (biofuels, synthetic fuels, new additives), new engine technologies (hybrid, downsizing, turbo-charged and feedback, VVT, gasoline direct injection, compression ignition homogeneous, sterling, etc.) and ignition in internal combustion engines and control of emissions are some of the major topics of the conference.

On the sidelines of the conference two expert panels will be held where the quality of dynamics in domestic cars in Iran and methods to promote the quality of fuel consumption and its impact on engine's performance and environmental pollution will be discussed

RIPI Program taps Persian Gulf, Oman Sea Energy Potentialities

 
 
 
 
TEHRAN, Jan. 24 (RIPI) -- The Research Institute of Petroleum Industry (RIPI) has defined a project, dubbed as Persian Gulf Pearl, to identify untapped oil and gas potentialities of the Persian Gulf and Sea of Oman.
Mohammad Reza Kamali, head of the upstream faculty of RIPI said on the sidelines of the 12th Kish International Energy Exhibition in Kish Island that Pearl of Persian Gulf project aims to identify the hydrocarbon source rocks of the gulf in order to discern the era oil and gas was trapped in the rocks.
Kamali said the aim of the project is to study using 3D modeling the existing hydrocarbon layers and to reconstruct the history of sediment deposition in the area since the Paleolithic era.
The $25.8-million Persian Gulf Pearl program has been very useful in estimating the quality and quantity of oil and gas trapped in the reserves, he said.
Furthermore, the program has showed that regions where former seismographic studies had ruled out the possibility of finding gas in them turned out to be rich with gas in deeper layers by the program.
The Pearl of the Persian Gulf exploits the latest developments in the fields of geophysics, petrophysics, geochemistry, and modeling to detect and recreate sedimentation processes in the basin of the Persian Gulf and Oman Sea (6000 meters of width) from Paleozoic Era till now.
In the meantime, the findings of the Pearl of the Persian Gulf will be used to verify the oil and gas accumulation point in the stratum and block traps, confirm the geological chronologies, and classify potential hydrocarbon reservoirs for further explorations.
 
This research includes 80 geological structures, 17 fields, and 490 oil and gas fields which covers 183 thousand 500 square kilometers.

RIPI Develops Iran's 1st Smart Sensor Controller

 
RIPI Develops Iran's 1st Smart Sensor Controller
 
 
TEHRAN, Jan. 05 (RIPI) -- Iran's Research Institute of Petroleum Industry (RIPI) has developed the country's first smart dynamic device for assessing and optimizing selectivity of certain gases in the presence of other gases.
Hamideh Samari Jahromi, RIPI's researcher in charge of the project to develop the device, said the system is aimed at detecting pollutants in Iran's oil and gas rich regions which have grown very vulnerable to pollutions created during recovery of hydrocarbons from natural resources.
Jahromi said Iran as the world's 4th biggest producer of natural gas, needed to indigenize manufacture of pollution detectors and RIPI's move has long been called for by petroleum industrialists.
She said one of the key features of the new detector is that it can dynamically receive and analyze the data it receives from gas sensors and can detect pollutions in them.
The most important feature of this device is that it can measure gas sensors dynamically which is important for detection of emissions such as methane, benzene, toluene, ethyl benzene, oxygen, volatile organic compounds, sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide, and hydrogen sulfide which are the most important pollutants in the petroleum industry. Furthermore, the system can selectively characterize the sensor responses and digitally analyze and optimize the data it receives from the sensors.
The system is also capable of measuring the exact amount of gases in parts per million and instantaneously monitor important pollutants in industrial operations in oil and gas fields. It can also simulate environmental factors such as temperature, humidity and atmospheric gas in accordance with operating conditions based on the data it receives from the sensors.
For the time being, RIPI is preparing documents for registering the patent of the invention
