Iran planning to raise import of Kazakh oil

Jun 08, 2006 02:00 AM

Tehran supports the idea of oil transporting by tankers from Kazakhstan in a view of scheduled increase of Iranian oil refinery capacities, said Mahmud Hagani, director general for Caspian affairs with Iran’s Ministry of Oil, whilst speaking in Baku at the “Sustainable development of oil and gas operations in Caspian Sea” conference. Hagani said Iran supports this project as managers of oil refineries in Iran are eager to raise capacities.
“For example, the oil refinery in Tabriz will be designed to process 50 bbl of oil a day. The refinery is launched in 2010,” he said.

Alongside, the Iranian official said Tehran has its program targeted to raise sustainability of Caspian oil projects.
“The Iranian route is one of the future ways to transport Caspian oil to world markets,” he said, calling port Neka “the Golden Gates to the Persian Gulf”.

“This port has a storage capacity 1.5 mm bbl and is currently storing some oil of Neka brand.”
“Tehran is planning to further extend Neka terminal,” Hagani said.
