Rouhani Inaugurates Project at Bandar Abbas Oil Refinery2019-02-18Iranian President Hassan Rouhani launched a major production enhancement project at Bandar Abbas Oil Refinery.
The project to bolster the production capacity and promote the quality of the items produced at Bandar Abbas Oil Refinery dramatically improves the plant’s petrol output.
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.
The project increases the refinery’s petrol production capacity by 3 ml/d and 70 percent of its output meets Euro-4 standards.
Moreover, commissioning the gasoil hydrogen refining unit of the facility would add 15 million liters per day of Euro-4 gasoil to the plant’s daily production capacity, and the petrol quality of the refinery is expected to meet Euro-4 standards by March.
Before inauguration of the project, the plant supplied 12 ml/d of petrol and was fed by 350,000 b/d of crude oil and gas condensate. It is touted as the third largest oil refinery in Iran.
