Iran to Double Shazand Refinery Output With New Unit, Mehr Says

Iran will start within three weeks a new gasoline production unit at the Shazand refinery which will double the plant’s output to 16 million liters a day, the state- run Mehr news agency reported.

The country’s total gasoline production capacity is due to rise to 70 million liters a day by the end of the Iranian calendar year on March 19, as more developments are put into operation, the agency said, citing Alireza Zeighami, the deputy oil minister and managing director of the National Iranian Oil Refining and Distribution Co.
