The agency quoted the general director of the aforementioned refinery as saying:
“The refinery has returned to work and took off with its basic units after a one-month hiatus due to the stoppage of crude oil. Today it is operating with good production capacity and produces all oil derivatives.”
The director emphasized that “the citizen will notice a breakthrough soon in the quantities of petroleum products on the market.”
Earlier this week, Iran transported one million barrels of oil to the Port of Baniyas in the Tartous Governorate; this helped alleviate the Syrian oil crisis, which was made worse by the Suez Canal’s blockage.
