Russian firms to discuss Iranian contracts

Representatives of Russian oil and gas companies will visit Tehran this week to discuss possible contracts after a visit Nov. 13-14 by Russian officials.

According to news reports, a delegation from the Russian parliament met with senior Iranian officials to discuss cooperation on energy and defense.

Amir-Hossein Zamanina, the Iranian deputy minister of petroleum for international affairs, said officials of Gazprom, Tatneft, Lukoil, and Zarubezhneft would follow to discuss projects made accessible to international investors by the lifting of international sanctions against the Islamic Republic last January.

Earlier this month, Total SA became the first western country to enter an agreement with Iran following the lifting of sanctions. In partnership with China National Petroleum Corp. and Iran’s Petropars, it signed a preliminary agreement for 11th-phase development of South Pars natural gas field (OGJ Online, Nov. 8, 2016).

On Oct. 8, Tatneft signed a memorandum of understanding with National Iranian Oil Co. to study development opportunities related to Dehloran oil field in Ilam Province.
