  • European Gov’ts Exploring Financial Channels for Iran

    The French, British and German governments have told Iran they are exploring activating accounts for the Central Bank of Iran with their national central banks to open a financial channel and keep alive the Iranian nuclear deal, according to several European officials.
    The move is the first concrete sign that Europe could deliver on its promise to take steps to sustain the Iranian nuclear deal, setting European governments squarely against the Iran sanctions policy of the US administration aimed at isolating Tehran economically, Wall Street Journal reported.
    Following the US President Donald Trump's withdrawal from the deal in May, Iran has said it would stop complying with the nuclear deal unless it continues to receive the economic benefits of the 2015 agreement. That deal saw most international sanctions on Tehran lifted in exchange for strict but temporary restrictions on Iran’s nuclear work.

  • Production From SP  Oil Layer Resumes

    Crude production from the oil layer of South Pars in the Persian Gulf has resumed after FPSO Cyrus, the floating production, storage and offloading vessel on the hydrocarbon reservoir, had an accident last week.
    "FPSO Cyrus, which had a minor collision with the [Panama-flagged] SOL tanker on Saturday due to bad weather conditions, has become operational again," Mohammad Hossein Daneshfar, a senior official at the Iranian Offshore Oil Company, was quoted as saying by Shana.
    "The incident had caused slight damage to the vessel's body, hose and other offloading equipment, which was fixed by the company personnel in no time," he added.
    Iran began to extract crude oil from South Pars in March 2016 using FPSO Cyrus.
