An adviser of the Iranian minister of petroleum called upon the Turkish private sector at an event in Istanbul to take part in six energy projects worth $100 billion, to be carried out in the country.
After the relief of sanctions on Iran, the first international conference on Iranian energy was held in partnership between Boğaziçi University Energy Policies Research Center, Tehran University Energy Management and Planning Research Institute and the Iranian Chamber of Industry and Commerce. The experts attending the conference highlighted that Turkey and Iran are about to start significant energy cooperation.
Amir Talebian, adviser of Iranian Petrol Minister Bijan Namdar Zangeneh, invited the Turkish private sector to partake in six important projects with an estimated investment cost of $100 billion. "We have devised six priority projects in oil and natural gas, which requires a $100-billion investment. We believe that partnering with Turkey in these projects will yield a regional and global impact," Talebian said in his speech at the conference. Tehran University Energy Planning Institute Chair Seyed Hossein Iranmanesh also underscored that Iranian gas might be delivered to Europe via a pipeline passing through Turkey.
