MAZAR-I-SHARIF (PAN): An oil-processing plant owned by the Ghazanfar Group has resumed activities after four months of closure at the Hairatan port in northern Balkh province, officials said on Monday.

Having the capacity of refining 500 tons of oil annually, the facility resumed operation in the presence of a number of high government officials on Sunday.  

The oil-refining process had been halted because of technical problems, but the plant had been made functional in line with a cabinet decision, said Mohammad Ibrahim Ghazanfar, in charge of the facility. He told Pajhwok Afghan News the refinery had been built at a cost of $32 million, having the capacity of producing high-quality oil and generating employment opportunities for 400 people.
