The world's biggest oil tanker is expected to enter the Persian Gulf's fleet soon, announced Iranian Offshore Oil Company (IOOC), a subsidiary of NIOC.

The oil tanker is an FSU (Floating Storage and Unload vessel) and is at the final stage of manufacture in South Korea, said Mahmoud Zirakchian-zadeh, the managing director of IOOC.

The oil tanker, according to Zirakhchian-zadeh, has a storage capacity of 2.2 million barrels of crude oil, for which about 300 million euros have been invested.

The oil tanker is primarily for storing the crude oil from several oil fields of Iran in the Persian Gulf, aiming at direct export to global markets, Zirakchian-zadeh added.
