Diesel Exports to Tajikistan

Diesel Exports to Tajikistan

Iran will ship the first diesel consignment to Tajikistan in the near future, with an aim to reinforce its presence in international markets, director of international affairs at the National Iranian Oil Refining and Distribution Company (NIORDC) said on the sidelines of the 20th Iran Oil Show.
“This is the first diesel shipment to Tajikistan and if it works out, Iran will commence export of several other oil products to the neighboring country,” Esmaeil Hasham-Firouz was quoted by ISNA as saying Saturday.
The NIORDC is facing surplus diesel and mazut production and is therefore aiming at new markets for export of surplus products. Iraq and Afghanistan are the NIORDC’s main targets, the official noted.
Iran currently exports three million liters of oil products to Iraq. Preliminary negotiations were also held with Iraqi Kurdistan officials for the export of six million liters of diesel in addition to 2.5 million liters of kerosene for a one year period.
Consumption of mazut and diesel fuel in power plants was curbed last year by nearly 8 billion liters due to stable supply of gas to plants nationwide. Diesel and mazut consumption, which stood at 9.2 and 10.2 billion liters respectively, were cut by 3 and 5 billion liters compared to the previous year. The 15 ml surplus diesel and kerosene will be exported to global markets, managing director of the NIORDC, Nasser Sajaddi, said Saturday.
