Iran to start export of petrochemicals to Australia

Iran says it will soon ship the first cargo of hexamine – a key petrochemical product used in a variety of industries – to Australia.

Iran says Australia has joined the list of the clients of its hexamine – a fresh sign showing that petrochemical products are already receiving a central role in the country’s non-oil exports. 

Iran held talks with Australia and Brazil for the export of hexamine to both countries in the near future, an Iranian trade official was quoted as saying by Press TV on Tuesday.

Hamed Vahedi, a member of Tehran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture, was quoted by the domestic media that talks with Australia over exports of hexamine have been finalized.   

Vahedi added that is taking the required measures to send a cargo of the petrochemical product - which is used in plastics industry as well as in production of explosives, rubber, and medicine – in the near future.

The official also said that similar talks for exports of hexamine to Brazil have been finalized, but did not indicate when the first consignment would be ready for shipment.   

Elsewhere in his remarks, Vahedi emphasized that Iran’s exports of petrochemicals had seen a dramatic rise after the removal of sanctions against the country in January.

Earlier, official figures showed that Iran had exported above 10 million tons of petrochemical products with a collective value of $4.3 billion – mostly to Asia - over a period of six months starting 21 March 2016.
