Piroozi Oil and Gas Refinery in Shahroud County, 400 kilometers west of Tehran in Semnan Province, will resume operations next month after over three years of inactivity, the managing director said.
“We hope the feedstock is provided on time so that it can restart production in February,” ISNA quoted Hamid Varesi as saying.
The refinery was launched in March 2016 but was shut down in October due to a fire that engulfed the plant. Fire broke out due to an explosion at one of the refinery's fuel storage tanks. Firefighters put out the blaze after five hours.
