Iran’s Abadan refinery puts two new units into operation
Baku, Azerbaijan, Sept. 13
By Fatih Karimov - Trend:
The gasoline post treatment unit (GPTU) and the sulfur recovery unit (SRU) of Abadan refinery, in southwest of Iran, were put into operation.
Habibollah Abolhasani, managing director of Abadan refinery, said the GPTU unit turns 24,000 barrels of crude oil into gasoline, meeting euro-4 standards, Iran's IRNA news agency reported on September 13.
The SRU unit has been installed and will replace the old SRP unit which had been closed due to the emission of environment polluting gases, he said.
Said Mahjubi, an official with the refinery, said in July that the facility produces some 13 million liters of gasoline with a sulfur amount of less than 50 ppm, under one percent of benzene, and less than 35 percent of aromatic.
