TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s Customs Office in a report said the value of country’s exports of petrochemical products in the first 8 months of the current Iranian year (March 21 – November 21) have increased by 32 percent compared to the same period last year.
Over the first eight months of the current Iranian year, $10 billion worth of petrochemicals was exported, showing a 32 percent increase compared to the same period last year, the report said.
About 21,000 tons of various petrochemical products were sold to foreign countries, according to the data.
However, the country’s exports of natural-gas condensate have dropped by 37 percent in the mentioned period, according to the report.
In August, CEO of National Petrochemical Company (NPC) Reza Norouzzadeh said Iran’s petrochemical industry was "unsanctionable” and that the exports would continue on schedule, hinting at U.S. sanctions against the country.
