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
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.
