South Korea’s crude oil imports from Iran soared 47.7 percent in the first seven months of this year from the same period last year, customs data showed.

The world's fifth-biggest crude importer bought 10.67 million tonnes of Iranian crude over the period, or 368,952 barrels per day, from 7.22 million tonnes in 2016, Reuters reported.

South Korea is a main client of Iran’s condensate and the imports of the very light crude produced in association with natural gas raised its total loadings of Iranian crude in July 26.5% from a year ago.

According to Reuters, Seoul lifted 1.40 million tonnes of crude from Tehran in July, or 330,151 bpd, up from 1.10 million tonnes last year.

Earlier this month, South Korea’s SK Engineering and Construction Co (SKEC) signed a heads of agreement for a 1.6 billion euro upgrade of the Tabriz refinery in northwest Iran.

Iran delivered more than 2.2 million bpd of crude to international markets in July, with exports to Asia up by 100,000 bpd at 1.4 million bpd.

China, South Korea, India, Japan are Iran's major crude oil customers on the Asian continent.
