|Iran has imported 670m liters of gasoline since mid-March: official||
TEHRAN – Iran has imported 670 million liters of gasoline, valued at 22 trillion rials (about $710 million) since the beginning of the current Iranian calendar year (March 21, 2014).
National Iranian Oil Refining and Distribution Company (NIORDC) Managing Director Abbas Kazemi said some 4.5 million liters of gasoline was imported on average per day in the current Iranian calendar year, the Mehr news agency reported on Sunday.
On May 18, Kazemi said importing gasoline is economically justified for the country.
In recent years, three petrochemical complexes were producing gasoline to meet the domestic need under the international sanctions imposed on the country’s oil sector, he added.
Iran’s daily gasoline imports stood at 3.5 million liters on average in the previous Iranian calendar year, Kazemi stated.
