Iran to Boost Diesel Exports to Iraq

By John Lee.

Iran plans to more than double its diesel exports to Iraq, according to Reuters.

The director of the National Iranian Oil Refining and Distribution Company (NIORDC), Alireza Zeighami, said that Tehran will supply 3-5  million liters of diesel a day, an increase on the 2-million-liters-a-day agreement signed by Iranian Oil Minister Rostam Qasemi (pictured) in March.

It is forecast that production of Iranian diesel will reach 100 million liters per day this (Iranian) year,” he said, adding that after meeting domestic demand there should be at least 3 million litres left over for export to Iraq.
