Iran's top four Asian buyers, China, India, South Korea and Japan, imported 1.99 million barrels per day (bpd) last month, up 147.9 percent on year, government and ship-tracking data showed, marking the highest volumes since at least 2010, according to data by International Energy Agency.

The volumes were in line with the OPEC member's and condensate export plans. Tehran has been battling to raise its output and export levels since economic sanctions targeting Tehran's disputed nuclear programme were lifted in January.

Japan's trade ministry on Wednesday released official data showing its rose 32.1 percent from a year earlier to 202,000 bpd in October.

India's grew more than fourfold from a year earlier to 789,100 bpd, the highest in at least 15 years, and topping China's of 773,860 bpd, which were more than double from a year ago. by third-biggest buyer South Korea rose 73.2 percent.
