BBC News: Iran looks to energy reserves for post-sanctions influence

BBC News: Iran looks to energy reserves for post-sanctions influence

Iran is a bona fide superpower in global energy markets. Or rather it would be if reserves in the ground were the measuring stick. Taking oil and gas together, only Russia can boast of greater riches. The potential to be a major gas exporter, then, is huge - were it not, that is, for the small matter of sanctions.

Platts: Iran: investment postponed

Platts: Iran: investment postponed

Iran’s economy has been hit by sanctions, mismanagement and now plummeting oil prices. Efforts to attract foreign investment remain stymied by a lack of progress over its nuclear program.

Oxford Institute for Energy Studies: Iran's Natural Gas Industry in the Post-Revolutionary Period - Optimism, Scepticism and Potential

Oxford Institute for Energy Studies: Iran's Natural Gas Industry in the Post-Revolutionary Period - Optimism, Scepticism and Potential

This book critically examines exports of Iranian natural gas to regional and international markets. Owning the world’s largest proven natural gas reserves, Iran can potentially be considered a major gas exporter. Yet, stringent international sanctions, coupled with domestic politicisation of the industry and lack of an ‘attractive’ investment framework, have made Iran unable to capitalise its huge natural gas potential both in domestic and international markets. In this book, a multidisciplinary approach is adopted to examine the main challenges hampering Iran’s ability to become a major gas exporter. These challenges range from political and legal to economic and fiscal.

Oxford Institute for Energy Studies: Reducing European Dependence on Russian Gas - distinguishing natural gas security from geopolitics

There is limited scope for significantly reducing overall European dependence on Russian gas before the mid-2020s. Countries in the Baltic region and south eastern Europe which are highly dependent on Russian gas, and hence extremely vulnerable to interruptions, could substantially reduce and even eliminate imports of Russian gas by the early 2020s, by a combination of LNG and pipeline gas from Azerbaijan.
