Iran has acquired the know-how to design and build liquefied petroleum gas storage tanks, which places it among the top 10 countries with the technology, a member of the Association of Petroleum Industry Engineering and Construction Companies said.
“Iran is the sole country in the Middle East that has the ability to build LPG storage tanks, which is considered one of the most complicated sections of a refinery, as it requires several safety measures,” Gholamreza Zeinalpour was also quoted as saying by IRNA on Saturday.
Zeinalpour noted that these tanks can help export stored LPG worth €1.5 million ($1.8 million) per day.
