Pakistan to buy 165 million liters of diesel from Iran
Azerbaijan, Baku, March 3 /Trend M. Moezzi/
Pakistan has said it's ready to buy 165 million liters of diesel annually a few days after Iran announced its biggest oil storage facility in the east is now connected to the national railway network.
If the two countries reach a final agreement, the diesel fuel can be sent directly to Pakistan via Iran's new rail line.
In addition to its request for diesel, Pakistan has asked Iran for kerosene, liquid gas and fuel oil, said Alireza Zeyghami, managing director of the National Iranian Oil Refining and Distribution Company (NIORDC).
Iran is expanding its Zahedan storage facility's capacity to hold petroleum products so it can export liquid fuel to some countries on the southern border of the Persian Gulf in addition to Pakistan.
