Iran's oil refining capacity at 1.24 mmbpd + 17%

Jan 19, 1997 01:00 AM

Iran's oil refining capacity is 1.24 million barrels per day, but actual runs can reach 17 % above this level, an Iranian oil official said recently. Refining capacity at the country's eight refineries was: Abadan 400,000 barrels a day, Isfahan 265,000, Tehran 225,000, Arak 150,000, Tabriz 110,000, Shiraz 40,000, Kermanshah 30,000 and Lavan 20,000 barrels per day. Product exports, mainly fuel oil and naphtha, ran close to 200,000. Domestic demand for petroleum products is growing at an annual rate of 3-4 %. Refinery run-rates above nominal capacity were usually achieved just prior and during the winter months when local demand for heating and other fuels increased. Iranian kerosene and heating oil demand usually reached 85 million litres a day in the winter, compared to below 80 million litres the rest of the year. Additional refining capacity will come on stream when the 232,000 barrels per day Bandar Abbas plant goes into operation. Construction is probably finishing in March, commissioning ofa crude unit in April.
