Iran says ready to export technical, engineering services to Uzbekistan

SHANA (Tehran) – Oil Minister Javad Owji on Tuesday voiced Iran’s readiness to export technical and engineering services to Uzbekistan.

Owji, who made the statement in a meeting with Uzbekistan’s Minister of Energy Jurabek Mirzamakhmudov in Tehran, added the Iranian companies and manufacturers are ready to participate in Uzbekistan’s oil projects.

Iran is currently cooperating with 42 countries in the oil, gas, and petrochemical sectors, said the oil minister, adding Iran’s oil industry has become self-sufficient in spite of unilateral U.S. sanctions and the country’s oil and gas fields are developed by domestic knowledge-based companies.

Owji said Iran is drilling oil and gas fields at a depth of 6,000 meters in the absence of foreign experts.

Uzbekistan asks Iran to share know-how

The Uzbek energy minister said he has closely observed Iran’s capabilities and achievements in international energy exhibitions, which displayed its modern oil and gas equipment.

He said Uzbekistan’s officials have adequate information about the Iranian companies’ great experiences in oil and gas exploration, extraction, transmission, and refining sectors, calling for Iran to share its expertise and technical know-how with his country.

Mirzamakhmudov, who is in Iran to follow up the agreements signed by Uzbekistan’s President Shavkat Mirziyoyev and his Iranian counterpart Seyyed Ebrahim Raeisi, said the Uzbek government is keen to expand relations, particularly in the oil sector, with Iran.
