Although, in comparison with the first six months of the previous year, gas use has been decreased by 25%, the total price has increased because of using the same amount of liquid feed. Due to fluctuations in reference currency rates, the price of gas has increased in comparison with the first half of the previous year.
Having mentioned the positive assessment of production trend in the first six months of the year 2013, Mr. Ansari Nik added that due to reduction of gas feed, Ethylene production rate has decreased by 5%, that is, 25000 tones. On the other hand, due to increase in liquid feed taking, Propylene production rate has increased by 6.61%, which is quite noticeable in the profit of Jam Propylene Company.
