Iran to Double Euro-4 Gasoil Output by March 2019

(Tuesday, October 9, 2018) 16:47

TEHRAN (Shana) -- Head of the National Iranian Oil Refining and Distribution Company (NIORDC) said projects were under way which would double Iran’s Euro-4 gasoil production and distribution capacity by the end of the current Iranian calendar year to March 20 2019.

Speaking to Shana, Alireza Sadiqabadi, NIORDC CEO, said an average of 29 million liters of Euro-4 gasoil was currently being produced domestically, adding once the naphtha hydrotreator unit of Bandar Abbas Refinery came online, a total of 16 ml/d of Euro-4 gasoil would be added to the facility’s daily output.

“By launching the unit, the production of sulfur content of the gasoil produced at the refinery will reach 50 ppm from 350 ppm,” he said.

Sadiqabadi emphasized that the refinery's isomerization unit would soon come online, which would convert the plant’s 12 ml/d gasoline output to Euro-4 petrol.

He said Persian Gulf Star Refinery’s Euro-4 gasoil output would reach 12 ml/d by March 2019, adding all the projects would double the country’s gasoil production capacity.
