The first naphtha consignment of the facility was destined to the United Arab Emirates.
The second consignment, weighing 280,000 tons of the item, will arrive in Japan by the end of this week.
The refinery is Iran’s first gas condensate refining facility.
After startup of major projects like Persian Gulf Star Refinery, Iran will be able to export gasoline.
The first phase of the refinery would have a capacity of 120,000 b/d of gas condensate.
The refinery is owned by Oil, Gas and Petrochemical Investment Company (49%), Oil Industry Pension Fund (33.1%) and National Iranian Oil Refining and Distribution Company (NIORDC) (17.9%).
Once fully operational, the refinery would produce 36 ml/d of high-octane gasoline and 14 ml/d of gasoil. Other products include 4 ml/d of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), 3 ml/d of jet fuel and 130 tons a day of sulfur.
After the project’s first phase becomes fully operational, other phases will come online each after 6 months.
