BAGCR Petrol Output at 10ml/d

TEHRAN, Aug. 12 (Shana) -- Bandar Abbas Gas Condensate Refinery, also known as Persian Gulf Star Refinery, is supplying nearly 10 million liters of Euro-4 gasoline on a daily basis, the refinery's managing director says.

Speaking to Shana, Morteza Emami said the refinery is supplying 6 million liters of Euro-4 gasoline with 95 octane content, and light naphtha at its CCR which bring its petrol output to 10 million liters per day.

Phase I of the refinery is being developed for production of 12 ml/d of petrol which, as Emami said, will be materialized by late August. The unit is fed by 77,000 b/d of gas condensate currently which is slated to reach 120,000b/d of the item.

Since its inauguration in April 2017, the refinery has supplied 320 million liters of gasoline, he added.

Upon the launch of the BAGCR's first phase in Hormozgan Province, major cities including Shiraz (Fars Province), Ahvaz (Khuzestan Province) and Bandar Abbas (Hormozgan) will receive a steady supply of high-grade gasoline.

Once fully operational, the refinery will produce 36 million liters per day of high-octane gasoline and 14 million ml/d of diesel.

The facility will also supply other products including 4 ml/d of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), 3 ml/d of jet fuel and 130 tons of sulfur every day.

The refinery is owned by Oil, Gas and Petrochemical Investment Company (49%), Oil Industry Pension Fund Investment Company (33.1%) and National Iranian Oil Refining and Distribution Company (17.9%).

The second phase is expected to come on-stream six months after the launch of the first phase and the output will be largely sold domestically.
