Iran Seeks Strategic Oil Clients

TEHRAN August 2 (Shana)--Iran is looking for strategic buyers of oil in the world, director for strategic planning of Petroleum Ministry said.

“We have to choose the best clients for oil or gas and we have to look for strategic clients and partners,” Saeed Qovapour said.
He said that Petroleum Ministry is developing a strategic plan for oil and gas sales in the future.
“We have a wide range of clients. Some of them are rich and some others are penniless. We may negotiate more easily with a client,” he said.
“Over the past ten years, strategic aspects have been ignored in the petroleum industry because Iran has had its own clients and the entire world needed Iran’s oil. But now, due to Iran’s sanctions conditions and more competitive market, more analysts and strategists are needed,” said Qovapour.
He said that Iran has to regain its markets lost due to international sanctions slapped on the country for its nuclear program.
“Today, there is tight competition between countries possessing oil and gas for wining bigger shares of the market. Therefore, strategic planning is needed,” he said.
