Dutch Firms Still Cooperating with Iran’s Oil Industry Despite US Sanctions: Exhibitor

TEHRAN (Shana) -- Despite unilateral US sanctions on Iran, Dutch oil and gas companies still have a significant presence in the country, said an oil expert and the representative of a Dutch firm in the 24th Iran Oil Show.

Speaking to Shana on the sidelines of the exhibition in the Iranian capital of Tehran on Friday (May 3), Khosrow Salour, who is also the managing director of Sayeh Gostar Pars Managers Economic and Business Consultancy, said despite US sanctions and threats and concerns expressed by Dutch banks, the European state’s firms still have an active presence in Iran.

Dutch companies cooperate with Iran’s oil industry in different forms, he said, adding many of them are directly carrying out activities in the country’s market.

Salour noted that the Dutch government does not prevent the country’s companies from cooperating with Iran’s oil industry and is committed to the terms of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), signed between Iran and P5+1 in July 2015.

Last May, US President Donald Trump pulled Washington out of the JCPOA and reimposed the White House’s unilateral sanctions on Tehran in two phases, both already in place.

Two Dutch firms have participated in the 24th Iran Oil Show, including Dutch Energy Solutions, he said.

Representatives of a large number of firms from the European country attended the exhibition as visitors, Salour added.  

The 24th Iran International Oil, Gas and Petrochemical Exhibition (Iran Oil Show 2019) began on Wednesday (May 1) and will continue until May 4 (Saturday).
