TEHRAN Dec 07 (Shana)–Iran produces 24 million liters of euro-4 and euro-5 gasoil out of 97 ml/d of the country’s total gas oil production, a deputy head of the National Iranian Oil Refining and Distribution Company (NIORDC) said.
Shahrokh Khosravani said Shahid Tondgouyan refinery in Tehran and Imam Khomeini refinery in Shazand produce the country’s euro-4 and 5 gas oil.
