Seyyed Reza Norouzzadeh, during a visit to Kharg
Island's oil export terminal, underlined the lucrative nature of petrochemical activities,
saying Iran was regarded as a major oil producer in the world and renovation of
the terminal's decks indicated the capabilities of the country's experts.
"Khark Island's export decks enjoy the required
standards and their equipment have been upgraded to the latest standards,"
he said on Sunday.
The NPC CEO further said Iran had always turned
sanctions and threats into opportunities, saying that some countries had always
been hostile to Iran; "boycotts do create problems, but the Iranian nation
has always made them an opportunity."
Norouzzadeh said: "The income generated from
exporting petrochemical products is a good income, and we hope that in the near
future Khark Island will become the hub of petrochemical industry."
