Iran Quadruples Export of Petroleum Products in 8 Years

TEHRAN (Shana) – Iranian Minister of Petroleum Bijan Zangeneh said, "Export of Iranian petroleum products in 2019 compared to 2012 has increased four times and for the first time 23 million tons of products were exported from the country, which is unprecedented in the history of the country."

Speaking on Monday evening, Mr. Zangeneh said: “The capacity of our petroleum products export terminals has tripled in the last two to three years, while, in recent years, we have always faced the problem of terminal capacity.”

Noting that some people think that exporting petroleum products is a simple task, he said: "It is not that exporting petroleum products is simple; we worked very hard and prevented smuggling so that the export of the product enters the official channel."

"Currently, we distribute an average of about 200 million liters of products per day in the country, a large volume of which is subsidized,” he went on to add.
