Iran Starts Gasoline Unit After Expanding Refinery, IRNA Says

July 31 (Bloomberg) -- Iran started a new unit for producing gasoline at the Tondgoouyan refinery in Tehran, raising the plant’s output of the fuel to 2.8 million liters (18,000 barrels) a day, the Islamic Republic News Agency reported.

The official report didn’t specify the refinery’s gasoline output before the expansion or its production capacity.

The project includes a unit for processing light naphtha and an isomerization unit, according to the official report today. Naphtha is a product of oil-refining that can be used as a feedstock in petrochemical plants. Tondgoouyan plans for the expansion to improve the quality of gasoline it produces, by increasing the fuel’s octane level, IRNA reported.
