30% of Distributed Gasoline in Iran Meet Euro-4 StandardSource: Tehran Times 2/14/2015, Location: Asia
About 30 percent of gasoline distributed in Iran meet Euro-4 standard, according to Seyyed Naser Sajjadi, the managing director of National Iranian Oil Products Distribution Company (NIOPDC).
Sajjadi said 70 million liters of gasoline is distributed per day in the currently, of which 18-20 million liters meet Euro-4 standard, the Tasnim News Agency reported.
He said the whole amount of gasoline distributed to the cities of Tehran, Isfahan, Arak, Karaj and Qom and half of the gasoline distributed to the city of Mashhad meet Euro-4 standard.
Meanwhile, Euro-4 gasoline is projected to be distributed to the cities of Shiraz and Ahwaz by the end of current Iranian calendar year (March 20, 2015), the official added.
Euro-4 is a globally-accepted European emission standard for the production of vehicle fuel with significantly low amounts of sulfur.
Iranís daily gasoline output is estimated to rise by 36 million liters once Persian Gulf Star Refinery comes on stream, according to Sajjadi.
Iran is expecting to become a net gasoline exporter in March of next year once the Persian Gulf Star Refinery becomes operational, according to Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh.
In the past the United States used gasoline imports to leverage economic pressure on Tehran over its nuclear energy program.
The U.S. pressure eventually forced Iran to convert some of its petrochemical plants to produce gasoline.
The production of petrochemical gasoline was halted when Hassan Rouhani became President. Imports resumed after Iran clinched a temporary nuclear agreement in 2013.
