CEO OF BANDAR ABBAS OIL REFINERY SAIS THE FACILITYíS GASOLINE QUALITY WOULD IMPROVE BY MARCH.



BANDER ABBAS - CEO of the Bander Abbas 350,000 b/d refinery Hashem Namvar stated that once a project to bolster the production capacity and promote the quality of the fuels produced at the facility came online (the launch of the stage 3), the plantís gasoline quality would improve dramatically.

The project entails a gasoil hydrogen unit, a power generator, nitrogen unit, sour water unit, Amine Contactor, light naphtha unit, and 17 storage tanks, which have all become operational.

Once the project comes on-stream, gasoline production capacity of the refinery would increase by 3 ml/d and 70% of its output would meet Euro-4 standards.



Moreover, commissioning the gasoil hydrogen refining unit of the facility would add 15mn liters/day of Euro-4 gasoil to the plantís daily production capacity, he said, adding the petrol quality of the refinery was expected to meet Euro-4 standards by March.

The refinery is currently supplying 12 ml/d of gasoline, Namvar said.
The refinery is receiving about 350,000 b/d of crude oil and gas condensate and is touted as the third largest oil refinery in Iran.
As previously reported in 2018, only the launch of the Bander Abbas refinery 1st stage saved for Iranís budget $5.4bn
