Iran says a few driving oil and gas players have presented the consequences of their investigations over the improvement of one of its greatest oil prospects – Azadegan oil field.
Ali Kardor, the overseeing executive of the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC), was cited by the household media as saying that the organizations included Total, Royal/Dutch Shell, CNPC and Inpex.
Kardor accentuated that the NIOC was at that point contemplating the examinations displayed by the organizations. He included that few more had asked for more opportunity to show their specialized assessments over Azadegan, yet did not name them.
In the interim, Iran's Petroleum Minister Bijan Zanganeh reported not long ago that the delicate procedures over the venture – known as Iran's greatest oil find in decades – had just begun.
Zanganeh likewise said that if things continue as typical, an arrangement over Azadegan was probably going to be fixed before next summer.
Iran found Azadegan oil field in the oil-rich southwestern area of Khouzestan in 1999 in what was the nation's greatest oil find in decades. The nation in like manner collaborated with Inpex to push the venture toward advancement. Be that as it may, the Japanese organization later quit the task in what seemed, by all accounts, to be the aftereffect of US sanctions against Iran.
The NIOC later partitioned the task into South Azadegan and North Azadegan and both were granted to China's CNPC when Iran's previous president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (2005-2013) was in office.
The media revealed in 2014 that Zangeneh had sidelined CNPC from South Azadegan because of its extended postponements in building up the field.
South Azadegan is accepted to hold a set up oil save of around 33.2 billion barrels and its recoverable assets evaluated at 5.2 billion barrels.
Azadegan is imparted to Iraq, and Iran is in a race with its neighbor to build up the supply. Imperial/Dutch Shell has built up the Iraqi extend of the repository, known as Majnoon oil field in the southern city of Basra.
Majnoon came into generation in 2014.
Iraq is pumping in the vicinity of 220,000 and 230,000 bpd from Majnoon, about three times finished the Azadegan yield, as indicated by a report by Xinhua news organization.
