Zagros exports petchem cargo to Europe

TEHRAN March 19 (Shana)–Zagros Petrochemical Company has delivered a consignment of petrochemical products to Europe, the first since sanctions were eased on Iran’s petrochemical sector, the company’s chief said.

“A 25,000-ton vessel carrying methanol was loaded on March 8 and departed for Italy,” Mohammad-Reza Mir-Ahmadi said.

“One of the main objectives of this company is presence in international markets and increasing methanol exports for reentry into European markets,” he said.

Zagros Petrochemical Company is one of five best methanol producing companies in the world.

National Petrochemical Company’s production manager Ali Mohammad Bassaqzadeh said on March 5 that Iran will be able to export petrochemical products to Europe once the international sanctions are lifted.

The products will be exported not only to Asian and African countries, but also to European countries, he added.

He added that by the end of the current Iranian calendar year (March 20), the country’s petrochemical output will hit 40 million tons.
