Greek Refiner to Visit Tehran 

Hellenic Petroleum, Greece's biggest oil refiner, will meet top Iranian oil officials on Friday to discuss crude oil imports from Iran, a company source said on Monday, after world powers lifted sanctions against Tehran at the weekend. Hellenic Petroleum was a major buyer of Iranian crude, which accounted for about 20% of the company's total annual crude oil imports before sanctions were imposed, Reuters reported. "Since the embargo has been lifted, Hellenic Petroleum can now discuss the possibility of a deal on crude oil supplies and on settling outstanding financial issues between the two sides,” an unnamed official of the company said. Hellenic Petroleum is estimated to owe $550 million-$600 million for oil it bought from Iran but was unable to pay when the international embargo was imposed, a source close to discussions between Iran and Greece told Reuters last month. Iranian Deputy Oil Minister Amir Hossein Zamaninia and officials from National Iranian Oil Company will be in Athens on Friday to meet Hellenic Petroleum executives, an official at Hellenic Petroleum told Reuters on condition of anonymity.
