With the Persian Gulf Star Refinery becoming fully operational, the feedstock allocated to the plant will nearly double.
The refinery, located in the city of Bandar Abbas, Hormozgan Province and being developed under three phases, is currently partially active with a capacity of 200,000 barrels per day of condensate, a type of ultra light crude extracted from the giant South Pars Gas Field in the Persian Gulf.
The second phase is being implemented gradually. Once all the units go on stream, PGSR's processing of gas condensate will increase to 360,000 bpd, Shana, the Oil Ministry's news agency, reported.
The refinery, which is the largest gasoline producing plant in the country, will produce 36 million liters of high-octane gasoline to wean Iran off the import of the fuel product.
