Iran supplies some 6 million tons of fuel per year to around 53,000 ships which navigate in the Persian Gulf, the governor general of Iran's southern Hormozgan province said.
Ebrahim Azizi told the Mehr news agency that nearly 16 million tons of fuel needed to fuel the ships functioning in the Persian Gulf.
The Persian Gulf, in Southwest Asia, is an extension of the Indian Ocean located between Iran (Persia) and the Arabian Peninsula. One-fifth of the world's oil supplies pass every day from Persian Gulf.
