Export of Iran’s LPG soars

TEHRAN, Jun. 20 (MNA) – An official has announced that exports volume of Iranian Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) hit 80 thousand tons in the first two months of the current Iranian year (began March 20).

Amir Vakilzadeh, Director of the Exports and Imports Office at National Iranian Oil Products Distribution Company (NIOPDC), said “in the current year, no amount of liquid gas has been burned by domestic refineries.”

“All produced LPG inside the country has been deployed to foreign markets in the present year,” underscored the official adding “overall, more than 80 thousand tons of Iranian LPG were shipped to foreign countries in the first two months of the current year spanning from March 20 to May 20.”

Vakilzadeh pointed out that LPG exports are being undertaken via surface to neighboring countries as well as the sea to African countries by exploiting ISO tanks; “LPG exports volume reached 127 thousand tons in the previous year while more than 80 thousand tons have been exported only in the first two months of the current year.”

African countries like Kenya, South Africa and Tanzania have been purchasing Iran’s LPG over the past two years in the form of ISO tank container shipments.

CEO of the Iranian Gas Commercial Company (IGCC) Mohammad Ali Barati has recently maintained that gas exports volume will climb by 5000 tons following the implementation of new South Pars developmental phases; “Middle Eastern countries form the largest market for Iran’s LPG.”
