The article reports on the decision of Bakhtar Petrochemical, a subsidiary of Iran's National Petrochemical Company, to cancel the contract for its Olefins No. 11 project, which was awarded to a consortium headed by Linde. The consortium will no longer build the cracker at the Pars Special Economic/Energy Zone in Assaluyeh. The reason for the cancellation was not clear but the Linde spokesman said it looked like it had been a political decision.
