Taiwan resumed oil imports from Iran in March after ceasing purchases a month earlier, according to data from Ministry of Economic Affairs.

The island nation bought 95,581 barrels a day from Iran in March, data from the Bureau of Energy under the ministry showed. Taiwan’s March purchases amounted to three times the 31,935 barrels a day it bought in January and the 30,247-barrel average in 2011.

Iranian crude imports declined 2 percent to 43,440 barrels a day in the first quarter, according to the data. CPC Corp., Taiwan’s state-run refiner, plans to stop importing oil from the Persian Gulf nation in July because of U.S.-led sanctions, company President Lin Maw-wen said March 26.
