Iran requires more investment in oil and gas sector
"In the next twenty years, Iran requires $ 6 bn of investment per year in its gas and oil sector." Iran’s OPEC
Governor, Hussein Kazempour Ardibili was quoted as saying.
Addressing the conference of “Development and Energy Cooperation”, Ardibili referred to the fact that more than half of the world oil reserves are located in Saudi Arabia, Iran and Iraq adding: "Such rich resources in view of the low costs of production and short distances from the Eastern markets make Iran a suitable ground for supplying Asia with energy and for joint investments."
