Iran to open world’s largest refining unit despite sanctions: Official
Feb 11, 2013

Iran's deputy oil minister has announced that despite the illegal US-led sanctions against Tehran, the Islamic Republic will soon inaugurate the world’s largest oil refining unit with the capacity of purifying over 90, 000 barrels of oil per day.

Alireza Zeighami said on Sunday that the refining capacity of the Residual Fluid Catalytic Cracking (RFCC) unit of Shazand Imam Khomeini Refinery in central Iran is twice that of the world’s biggest RFCC unit.

The world’s largest RFCC unit has the refining capacity of 45,000 barrels of oil per day, while the refining capacity of Imam Khomeini Refinery’s RFCC unit is 90-95 thousand barrels a day, said Zeighami, who is also head of the National Iranian Oil Refining and Distribution Company (NIORDC).

Iran plans second nuclear plant with Russia cooperation
Feb 12, 2013

Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi says Russia is Tehran’s first choice to participate in the construction of Iran’s second nuclear power plant.

“The Russian Federation is the first priority for the construction of the new nuclear power plant in Iran,” Salehi told reporters in Moscow on Tuesday.

“Under a 1992 Iran-Russia agreement, we have agreed to build nuclear power plants with a capacity of up to 5,000 megawatts in cooperation with Russia,” he said.

Salehi noted that the country’s current facility in Bushehr produces up to 1,000 megawatts of electricity, which leaves the country with 4,000 megawatts of nuclear-derived electricity to be generated by new power plants.

The minister noted that the Islamic Republic eyes to achieve a capacity of 20,000 megawatts before long.

Salehi also hailed the mutual understanding between Tehran and Moscow for the implementation of the 1992 agreement on cooperation in peaceful use of nuclear energy, expressing hope that the two sides would soon start the construction of the second unit of the Bushehr power plant.

The Bushehr plant was originally scheduled for completion in 1999. However, the project was repeatedly delayed by the Russian side due to intense pressure exerted on Moscow by the United States and its Western allies.

In September 2011, the Bushehr nuclear power plant officially began its operations, generating electricity at 40 percent of its capacity.

The plant, which is operating under the full supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency, reached its maximum power generation capacity for the first time on August 30, 2012.

Iran and Russia have assured the international community that the plant is fully compliant with high-level safety standards and IAEA safeguards.

Iran launches indigenous ocean-going tanker ship
Feb 24, 2013

Iran’s first domestically manufactured ocean-going tanker has begun its maiden voyage in the Persian Gulf waters.

The tanker, manufactured by Iran Shipbuilding and Offshore Industries Complex Co. (ISOICO), was launched on Sunday in the southern port city of Bandar Abbas.

Hamid Rezaeian, managing-director of ISOICO, said at the ceremony that the tanker is 178 meters long, 32 meters wide and 16 meters high, with a nine-meter draft.

He added that the vessel, ordered by the National Iranian Tanker Company (NITC) for USD30 million, is capable of carrying 35,000 tons of oil products.

The Islamic Republic of Iran has achieved significant progress in marine and shipbuilding industries in recent years and has developed several domestic and international projects.

In one of its latest shipbuilding projects, Iran delivered the first Aframax tanker made for the Venezuelan national oil company, PDVSA, in October 2012.

The tanker was one of the four tankers ordered by the Venezuelan company and built by Iran Marine Industrial Company (Sadra).

Aframax ships are oil tankers smaller than 120,000 metric tons deadweight with a breadth of above 32.31 meters.

India to set up fund for insuring Iran crude tankers
Mar 25, 2013

A senior Indian official says New Delhi plans to establish a fund for insurance companies providing cover for importers of Iranian crude in order to counter Western sanctions against Tehran.

"According to the proposal, public sector insurance companies and the Oil Industry Development Board under the petroleum ministry would contribute money for the fund that would provide reinsurance for the state-owned insurers," Vivek Rae, Secretary for India’s Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas, said on Sunday.

The measure is reportedly aimed at countering the effect of sanctions imposed by the European Union, banning the bloc’s members from purchasing Iran's oil or extending insurance coverage for tankers carrying its crude. The EU bans entered into force on July 1, 2012.

"What will be the size of this fund, how much we are required to contribute, whether it is enough to cover reinsurance -these are the details that insurance companies have to work out," Rae added.

Indian refiners HPCL, Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Limited (MRPL) and Essar are the main clients of Iranian crude oil.

The US, Israel, and some of their allies have repeatedly accused Iran of pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program.

Using the unfounded allegation, the US and its European allies have imposed unilateral sanctions against the Islamic Republic.

Iran rejects the allegation, arguing that as a committed signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency it is entitled to develop nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.

Gold exports from Turkey to Iran resume
03/29/2013

STANBUL - Turkey exported almost $120 million worth of gold to Iran in February, data showed, suggesting the two countries' trade of gold for natural gas has resumed despite tighter US sanctions, though at levels below last year's peaks.

US officials have sought to prevent Turkish gold exports from providing a financial lifeline to Tehran, which has been largely frozen out of the global banking system by Western sanctions over its nuclear program.

Turkey's total gold exports rose 18 percent to $551.6 million in February from $466 million in January.

India to continue Iran oil imports as trade rises: Indian official
Mar 31, 2013

A senior Indian official says trade ties between Iran and India are “on the rise,” stressing that New Delhi will not halt oil imports from the Islamic Republic.

“Any kind of permanent halting of oil shipments from Iran is not feasible at this point of time,” the Indian daily The Hindu quoted a senior Commerce Ministry official as saying.

The official noted that any decision to stop Iranian crude will “jeopardize” the rising bilateral trade relations.

“The Iranians have shown interest in import of various business commodities including agricultural products and any adverse decision on the crude oil front will jeopardize that great opportunity,” the official said.

The comments came only days after India’s Petroleum and Natural Gas Minister M. Veerappa Moily rejected the recent Western reports that that his country might halt imports of Iranian crude over the US-led sanctions against Tehran's energy sector.

An Indian oil official also recently announced that details of an insurance fund for Iranian oil shipments would be outlined in the near future, adding that India's national insurance companies, the Oil India Development Board as well as other major players in the nation’s oil industry will contribute to the insurance fund.

India is among Asia’s major importers of energy, and relies on the Islamic Republic to satisfy a portion of its energy requirements.

The United States, the Israeli regime and some of their allies have repeatedly accused Iran of pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program.

Iran has categorically rejected the allegation, arguing that as a committed signatory to the the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) it is entitled to acquire and develop nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.

Taiwan to buy Iranian crude first time
Apr 9, 2013

Iran produces around 4 million barrels of oil a day. But the country refines most of its crude for domestic consumption or production of petrochemicals which are then dispatched to global markets. According to the International Energy Agency, Asian refiners like South Korea, India, Japan and China continue to buy Iran's export volumes. Just for the record, China in March sent an oil tanker to the southern Iranian island of Khark to carry crude to the tune of two million barrels a day, using Iranian insurance. Iranian Lawmakers also agree that the impact of the unilateral sanctions has been insignificant.

According to the report, the biggest month-on-month jump is from South Korea, which will triple imports. Japan will also increase imports as its refining units will restart by late May after maintenance. Japan’s April volumes will more than double from the same month a year ago when uncertainty over sanctions caused imports to plunge. China, Iran's top customer, plus India have increased imports as well. Last but not least, Taiwan will resume Iranian oil imports for the first time this year.

India to continue Iran oil imports despite sanctions: Report
Apr 11, 2013

Quoting senior Indian government officials, the Economic Times reported on Thursday that New Delhi will continue its energy ties with Tehran.

Meanwhile, India’s state-run General Insurance Corp (GIC) has recently agreed to provide insurance cover for tankers carrying Iranian crude oil.

India is among Asia’s major importers of energy, and relies on the Islamic Republic to satisfy a portion of its energy requirements.

Indian refiners HPCL, Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Limited (MRPL) and Essar are the main clients of Iranian crude oil.

At the beginning of 2012, the United States and the European Union (EU) imposed new sanctions on Iran’s oil and financial sectors.

The sanctions, which prevent the EU member states from purchasing Iran's oil or extending insurance coverage for tankers carrying Iranian crude, came into effect on July 1, 2012.

The illegal US-engineered sanctions were imposed based on the unfounded accusation that Iran is pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program.

Iran rejects the allegation, arguing that as a committed signatory to Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), it has the right to use nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.

Tehran Oil Show proves failure of US-led sanctions: Iran min.
Apr 16, 2013

Iranian Oil Minister Rostam Qasemi says the upcoming high-profile Oil Show in Tehran demonstrates the failure of international sanctions against the Islamic Republic’s energy sector.

The minister said in a message on Tuesday that the 18th International Oil, Gas, Refining and Petrochemical Exhibition, scheduled to kick off on Thursday, is a “clear manifestation of the failure and ineffectiveness” of sanctions engineered by the United States.

“They (the sanctions) have not only failed to paralyze Iran, but also contributed to the blossoming of national domestic talents in the light of self-sufficiency campaign,” Qasemi stated.

The minister went on to say that Iran’s oil sector will face no obstacle in playing its “strategic role as the most secure source of energy supply [to the world].”

Qasemi added that the Oil Show will put on exhibit the “technical and industrial strength” of Iran’s energy sector.

More than 1,000 Iranian and foreign companies are expected to attend the four-day exhibition.

At the beginning of 2012, the US and the European Union imposed new sanctions on Iran’s oil and financial sectors with the goal of preventing other countries from purchasing Iranian oil and conducting transactions with the Central Bank of Iran.

Washington and the EU used the false claim that Iran is pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program to impose the illegal sanctions. Iran, however, categorically rejects the allegation.

Your cut and past style, is annoying. What is your argument, Rampage? Do you even understand the issue put up for discussion?

You appear lazy. Hurried is perhaps a kinder observation. My analysis is that you are either a sock or, you are paid to post on this forum.

My analysis is based on the fact that that there is little evidence of thought involved here.

My conclusion, based on what I see here, is that you are a paid poster.
