Iran’s refineries have the capacity to turn 2 million barrels of crude oil (mmbbl) into petroleum products daily, Secretary-General of Iran’s Oil Refining Industry Contractors Association (ORICA), Nasser Ashouri, stated.

He added that the main petroleum products in Iran’s refineries include gasoline, diesel, aircraft fuel, and kerosene in which some are used for local consumption and the surplus is exported. Despite the imposed sanctions, Ashouri affirmed that Iran’s refineries will be able to meet the local consumption. He noted that Iran’s daily consumption of gasoline ranges between 75 to 110 million liters, yet none have been imported in the past two years.
