TABRIZ (Mehr)—The Tabriz, Iran-based National Iranian Oil Refining and Distribution Company “Shahriar” will supply its products to Armenia, as well as several Central Asian and Caucasus countries, NIORDC representative Syed Hassan Kasem-Zadeh said Wednesday in an interview with the Mehr news agency.
Upon the completion of a new refinery in Tabriz, the necessary conditions for the product’s export to Central Asian and Caucasian countries, including Armenia will be created. Shahriar oil products will conform with “Euro 5” environmental standards, added Kasem-Zadeh.
This year Armenia and Iran have launched the construction of a Tabriz-Yeraskh oil pipeline to supply Armenia with Iranian oil products. The project will supply fuel and diesel oil to Armenia, which consumes an estimated 450,000 to 500,000 tons of oil products a year.
