“China's Sinopec Engineering Company and Oil Design and Construction Company from Iran are involved in  developing the second phase of the refinery, which includes a new crude distillation plant to replace three old  units that were built 70 years ago,” Iran Petronet news website quoted Ali Akbar Mirqaderi as saying.
The rehab project is aimed at enhancing the quality of products and improving their compliance with international standards.
