Iran Plans to Raise Oil Exports to Japan, Tehran Times Says

January 08, 2012

Jan. 8 (Bloomberg) -- Iran plans to increase daily crude oil exports to Japan to 240,000 barrels in 2012, Tehran Times said, citing Mohsen Qamsari, head of international affairs at the state-owned National Iranian Oil Co.

Iran’s oil exports to Japan declined by 100,000 barrels a day last year, Qamsari said, without giving an export figure. He cited Japan’s decision to reduce oil imports to 3.5 million barrels a day from 5.5 million barrels earlier.
