Iran Pre-commissions Bandar Abbas Refinery Gasoline Unit

The official noted that both the Bandar Abbas Refinery gasoline and continuous catalytic regeneration (CCR) units have been per-commissioned to get ready for full operation.

After completion of the new unites, the Bandar Abbas Refinery is expected to produce 3.5 ml/d additional gasoline and therefore, the refinery will have the capacity to produce 12 ml/d of gasoline, Kazemi noted.

He said in the meantime that after completion of the Bandar Abbas Refinery gasoline and continuous catalytic regeneration (CCR) units, the country’s euro-4 gasoline production will reach 36 ml/d from the current amount of 28 ml/d.

Iran is to boost the gasoline output and the quality of its Bandar Abbas Refinery by commissioning the new units in the second half of the year, Kazemi added.

All the required machinery and equipment for installation of the units have been purchased and are being installed at their designed spot.

The refinery will produce euro-4 petrol once the two projects come online. Once fully operational, this project will be producing 21Kbd of low-density naphtha, 25Kbd of high-density naphtha and 120tons a day of sulfur.
