Iran becomes self-sufficient in gasoline production

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani has inaugurated third phase of the gas condensate plant, known as the Persian Gulf Star Refinery in the southern city of Bandar Abbas.

The gas condensate plant supplies various petroleum products including gas oil, gasoline, hydrogen, sulfur and jet fuel. The project is among many other projects inaugurated on the 40th anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution.

With the inauguration of the phase of the plant, the Persian Gulf Star Refinery is now capable of producing 45ml/d of Euro-4 gasoline, 12.5ml/d of gas oil, 3ml/d of condensate gas and 2ml/d of jet fuel, according to dolat.ir.

On the other hand, the plant can create 600 permanent jobs and its feed-stock capacity stands at 120,000 b/d. Environmental protection is also among other aspects of the project.  

President Rouhani also inaugurated a separate project designed to promote the quality of Bandar Abbas Refinery’s gasoline and oil gas.
