Tehran Oil Refinery has signed a memorandum of understanding with two Japanese companies, JGC Corporation and Marubeni Corporation, on enhancing gasoline quality and quantity as well as reducing mazut output, the refinery’s managing director said.
“The refinery’s gasoline production is planned to rise by 25% in the first phase of the project and by 100% in the second,” Lotfollah Hangi was also quoted as saying by IRNA late Saturday.
Hangi noted that to eliminate benzene from gasoline and upgrade its quality to comply with Euro-5 emission standards, new quality enhancement units are to be constructed in the refinery.
He added that the units include a hydrogen purification unit with a capacity of 16,000 barrels per day, a continuous catalytic regeneration unit with a capacity of 14,000 bpd and a benzene reduction unit that can process 24,000 bpd. 
Tehran Oil Refinery is located 15 kilometers south of the capital and includes two sections (southern and northern). Its nominal crude refining capacity is over 230,000 barrels a day.
