About 39.6 million tons of non-oil goods worth $15.2 billion were exported from the southern Bushehr Province in the last Iranian year (March 2016-17), registering a 47% rise in tonnage and 17% hike in value compared to a year before, Bushehr's Customs Administration reported. Gas condensates and petrochemicals accounted for a majority of exports. Condensate shipments from Bushehr amounted to 18.8 million tons worth $7.4 billion last year, IRNA reported. Condensates exports rose significantly as of January 2016, when sanctions imposed over Iran’s nuclear program were lifted as part of a landmark deal Tehran clinched with the world powers a year earlier. Bushehr’s petrochemical exports topped 15 million tons worth $7.4 billion last year.
