Iran works to ease oil exports
Azerbaijan, Baku, Feb. 27/ Trend M. Moezzi
The largest oil storage facility in eastern Iran has been connected to the national railroad, making it possible to export more petroleum products to neighboring countries like Afghanistan and Pakistan, Pana news agency reports.
The storage facility in Iran's Zahedan Porvince got its first rail shipment of 1.2 million liters of diesel fuel in January. The Zahedan Province is in the south-east of Iran, bordering Afghanistan and Pakistan and its location is ideal for exporting products to neighbors in the east and Persian Gulf countries.
Pakistan has recently approached Iran about buying petrol, diesel, kerosene, liquid gas and fuel oil. The two countries have formed working groups to discuss Iran's exports of petroleum products.
Iran plans to increase the Zahedan oil storage facility's capacity to 190 million liters.
