Tehran, Iran, Oct. 26
Iran has exported 50,400 thousand metric tons of fuel to Iraq in the seven months since the beginning of the current Iranian fiscal year (March 21).
Governor of Iranian border city Qasre-Shirin Afshin Rezaee said the exported fuel has earned Iran $34,985,417, IRNA news agency reported Oct. 26.
1,930 fuel tankers were used to carry the fuel, he said.
Out of the total export, 26,400 thousand metric tons was exported via the Parviz-Khan checkpoint in Qasre-Shirin using 100 tankers, he said, adding that the amount was worth $23.76 million.
The fuel carried through that checkpoint was reformate gasoline worth 900 to 940 USD per metric ton, he said.
In the meantime, Iran has been exporting gas oil to Iraq since July, the amount of which has so far hit 24 thousand metric tons, the official stated.
The exported gas oil earned Iran $11,225,417, he said.
Iran has been boosting its liquid fuel export in recent months thanks to its huge natural gas reserves.
The government has been following a plan to supply natural gas to various industrial units and power plants instead of liquid fuel, hoping to save on the liquid fuels for export.
