Can Elham Hassanzadeh get Iran’s oil flowing again?
Hamid Soorghali: New Contracts Offer Synergies Between Players in Iran's Power Industry
Desperate to attract technology and investment back to its stalled oil and gas sector, Iranian officials are pushing the limits with the terms they will offer IOCs in any post-sanctions opening. They face not only skepticism from the firms themselves but also a backlash from conservative factions in Tehran.
Iran’s nuclear deal will allow IOCs to return, but while vast reserves and low global energy prices make the country attractive, it is yet to finalise its contractual framework for upstream developments.
Lifting sanctions should open the way for major oil groups to return to the country, but negotiations will be tough.

Executives from Royal Dutch Shell and Eni have met Iranian officials in Tehran to discuss investing in the country’s energy industry, the first time international oil groups have publicly confirmed such talks ahead of a possible nuclear deal with the west.
News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services. Big business lines up to get into Iran after sanctions go away. President Barack Obama likes to say that sanctions on Iran can be "snapped back" into place should Tehran violate any nuclear deal it might sign.
El gobierno de Irán acelera su plan para convertirse en imprescindible exportador de gas en la región e impulsar así su maltrecha economía, una vez las potencias occidentales levanten las sanciones que pesan sobre el país.
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.
Talk of progress in the nuclear negotiations between Iran and the world powers has had oil traders on edge.
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. If sanctions are lifted, Iran looks likely to offer attractive terms for world class oil and gas projects. But investment stability ultimately hinges not just on contracts, but the consistency of the regime behind them.

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.
لندن - ایرنا - دکتر 'الهام حسن زاده' محقق انستیتوی مطالعات انرژی آکسفورد، کاهش بهای نفت خام در بازار جهانی را ناشی از جنگ قیمت ها ندانست و گفت: این کاهش ناشی از تغییرات صورت گرفته در این بازار بدنبال ورود بازیگرانی جدید چون آمریکا، کانادا، لیبی و عراق و کاهش مصرف در کشورهای عمدۀ مصرف کننده همانند چین، هند و برخی کشورهای اروپایی است .
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.
