Iran’s euro-4 diesel output rises by 10 mln liters

Baku, Azerbaijan, Mar.9

By Fatih Karimov - Trend:

Iran's Shazand oil refinery has started producing 10 million liters of diesel per day meeting euro-4 standards, the Shana News Agency quoted the managing director of National Iranian Oil Refining & Distribution Company, Abbas Kazemi, as saying on March 9.

Tehran's Shahid Tondgouyan refinery also produces 11 million liters of diesel per day. The two refineries meet 20 percent of the country's need to diesel, he added.

The Shazand refinery's development plan aims to boost its capacity from 170000 barrels per day to 250000 bpd. The refinery currently supplies 16 million liters of premium gasoline and 10 million liters of diesel to the market.

Kazemi added that Tehran's gas stations will only distribute gasoline conforming to Euro-5 standard in two years.

Iran currently distributes 13 million liters of gasoline conforming to Euro-4 and Euro-5 standards in big cities including Tehran, Karaj, Isfahan, and Arak.

He added that the country only has the capacity to produce and distribute 13 million liters of gasoline conforming to Euro-4 and Euro-5 standards. The figure is 17 million liters less than the amount that Iran's previous administration used to claim.

By inauguration of Shazand oil refinery's biggest sulfur production unit, the refinery's Euro-4 and Euro-5 gasoline production capacity has reached 16 million liters per day, the refinery's managing director, Ali Shirazizadeh, said on January 26, Iran's ISNA News Agency reported.

"The sulfur production unit came on stream at the cost of 70 million euros," Shirazizadeh said.

He went on to note that the refinery currently has the capacity to annually produce 700 tons of sulfur.

Iranian IRNA News Agency reported on January 6 that the country plans to turn to high-quality and standardized gasoline in order to reduce the capital's constantly increasing air pollution.

According to Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh, Iran currently imports some gasoline and octane boosters. Mehr News Agency puts the figure at 5-7 million liters per day.

The Mehr News Agency reported on December 25 that the Iranian environment department has urged the oil ministry to import high-quality and standardized gasoline because air pollution has reached an alarming level in big cities.

Several meetings have been held between officials of the environment department and the oil ministry in this regard.

Moreover, it has been announced that all the cars should meet Euro-4 standards by the end of spring next year.
