Tehran, IRNA -- Iran is going to start construction of its first ever petrorefinary next Persian year (later in 2022), Oil Minister Javad Owji said on Tuesday.

Speaking in the unveiling ceremony of documents on Mazut value chain completion by domestic technical knowledge, Owji said that the Research Institute of Petroleum Industry has completed the value chain of Mazut and the related project would soon start off, with valuable side products like sponge coke.

He promised that the oil ministry would start construction of the first 300k-barrel petrorefinary next year in southern Iranian Hormozgan Province.
