  • Reports are emerging of a pipeline explosion at Iran’s Parsian refinery in the country’s southwest, where an excavator reportedly hit a 10-inch gas condensate pipeline today.
  • In mid-November, an explosion at an oil pipeline in southern Iran was attributed to aging infrastructure.
  • No casualties were reported in that incident either, in which a 16-inch outlet line of Iran’s Maroon Gas Injection Station cracked in the explosion, leading to minor leaks which caused a fire.
