The refinery also produces and exports some 750 tons of sulfur for industrial uses per day, the Persian service of IRNA said on Wednesday.
In addition, the Oil Ministry and the provincial officials are studying a plan aimed at turning the natural gas abundant in the nation into gasoline. If approved, the project to turn the flared gas and acid gas of the refinery into gasoline would call for $300 million in investment and a two-year timetable, the refinery director said.
