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.
