 Investor Guide

The process designed for guiding and supporting investors interested in Iran's downstream petrochemical industries is as follows:

Investors who are referred to the NPC's Office for Development of Downstream Petrochemical Industries are divided into three categories

1- Investors interested in downstream petrochemical projects

2- Investors interested in upstream and midstream petrochemical projects

3- Investors who already have a project at hand and are in need of support and guidance

The first group includes investors who seek attractive opportunities in downstream petrochemical production businesses. These investors account for the largest number of applicants and usually have a capital of less than RIALS 200 billion.

As the first step, these investors are referred to the website of NPC's Office for Development of Downstream Petrochemical Industries to become acquainted with the petrochemical industry chains and the investment opportunities introduced on the website. After acquiring the basic information such as the name of the product, the required raw material, etc, from the website and other documents (including handbooks, CDs, etc.), the investors will be evaluated during a meeting.

The second group includes investors seeking business opportunities in the up and midstream petrochemical sectors. They seek projects with higher investment that the first group. These investors will first be evaluated and then provided with one or more projects based on their capacities.

The final category includes investors, who are working on projects in down or midstream
petrochemical industries. This group usually faces problems in areas of technology, finance, marketing, etc.  In such cases, the experts of the Office identify the problem and help investors by introducing them to relevant advisors.

Therefore, different investors are guided according to the category in which they fall. They are introduced to relevant organizations such as banks, petrochemical companies, associations, etc., to receive the support they need. The goal of the NPC's Office for Development of Downstream Petrochemical Industries is to give advice to investors, identify opportunities and provide planning and coordination for creating new businesses.
