A diesel hydrotreating unit, which is a part of the plan to raise production capacity and quality, is near completion at Bandar Abbas Oil Refinery in the southern Hormozgan Province, the refinery’s managing director said.
“The unit, which is currently in the final stage, will reduce sulfur content in diesel to less than 50 parts per million, which complies with Euro-4 standards,” Hashem Namvar was also quoted as saying by Shana, the Oil Ministry’s official news agency, on Monday. 
Namvar noted that the diesel hydrotreating unit accommodates two furnaces, the first of which has already come on stream and the second is being readied for launch based on strict safety and technical standards. The official added that other sections of the unit, including reactors and a rotary-screw gas compressor, will also become operational in the near future.
