Greek refiner denies Iran refused oil shipment

ATHENS, Feb 26 (Reuters) - Greek refiner Hellenic Petroleum has not been refused any shipment of crude oil from Iran, a company official told Reuters on Sunday, denying a Fars news agency report.

The semi-official Iranian news agency earlier reported Iran had refused to give Greece a shipment of 500,000 barrels of crude oil in a retaliatory measure against European Union sanctions.

It said tankers that left empty-handed from Iran were destined to bring oil to Hellenic.

“That has nothing to do with us ... all supplies from Iran have been processed normally,” a company official told Reuters.
