Abbas Kazemi, CEO of the National Iranian Oil Refining and Distribution Company, in interview with Nasim Online said "The corrective measures to increase the quality and quantity of gas produced in Iran are going on. As the Setareh Khalij Fars refinery which only produce Euro 4 gasoline joins the production, the country’s gasoline quality will be agreeably improved.”
He further said "As the Setareh Khalij Fars joins the production cycle, there will be no need neither to import gas nor to produce it at refineries.”
Kazemi stated that the Oil Ministry is planned to grow independent in gasoline production by the next Iranian year.
He said "We are optimistic that the first 120-thousand-barrel phase of the Setareh Khalij Fars refinery will be operational in the second half of this year, which will add to the country’s Euro 4 gas production 12 million liters a day; which means that we will practically be needing no gas import.”
