Iran daily gasoline production to increase 6m liters

Economy - Iran’s gasoline production will increase by six million liters a day after a refinery in the south of the country starts producing gasoline in the next Persian calendar year (starting on March 21, 2014).

The objective will be achieved after the gasoline production unit of Bandar Abbas refinery becomes operational, the project manager said on Sunday.

Ahmad Farzaneh added that the National Iranian Oil Engineering and Construction Company (NIOEC) started the 800-million-euro project in 2007.


“Production of 3.5 million liters per day (mlpd) of premium gasoline, 2.5 mlpd of regular gasoline and nearly 8 mlpd of Euro-5 standard gas oil are important achievements of the gasoline production project in Bandar Abbas Oil Refining Company,” the official said.

Bandar Abbas Refinery is the third largest refinery in Iran, after Abadan and Isfahan refineries.

Euro-5 is a globally-accepted European emission standard for the production of vehicle fuel with significantly low amounts of sulfur.

Iran attained self-sufficiency in fuel production after its international suppliers stopped selling gasoline to Tehran under US pressure.
