Iran oil exports at record high

Nine oil tankers have docked at Iran's largest oil terminal, thus setting a record of Iran's oil exports and tanker traffic this year, said an official.

Managing Director of Iran Oil Terminals Company (IOTC) Pirouz Mopusavi told Mehr News Agency that nine oil tankers docked concurrently at eastern and western ports of Kharg Island Oil Terminal.

He added, "Crude oil was also transferred to a tanker via ship-to-ship (STS) method."

The official maintained that with the docking of nine oil tankers, Iran's crude oil exports rose to high this year. "A total of about 7.1 million barrels of crude oil were exported via the tankers."

He added that some of the oil tankers were from China, India, South Korea and a European country.

"Presently, all necessary infrastructure for providing services to Iranian and foreign tankers has been established at Kharg oil terminal and there is no technical or operational constraints on providing services," he said.
