Surplus Heavy Water Sent to Oman

The Atomic Energy Organization of Iran has announced the transfer of an undisclosed amount of its surplus heavy water to Oman for commercial purposes.
“In view of the progress of talks with several foreign firms and countries to purchase heavy water, some quantities of Iran’s surplus production has been transferred to Oman,” Behrouz Kamalvandi, the AEOI spokesman, said on Sunday.
Kamalvandi added that more surplus heavy water will be sent to Oman in the future.
Earlier in the month, the International Atomic Energy Agency said in its quarterly report that Iran’s stock of heavy water had slightly exceeded the 130-ton level set out in last year’s nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. Iran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council plus Germany signed the JCPOA in July 2015 and started implementing it in January 2016.
Under the JCPOA, Iran undertook to put temporary curbs on its nuclear program in exchange for the removal of nuclear-related sanctions imposed on Tehran.
On Friday, Kamalvandi stressed that Iran has remained committed to its JCPOA obligations, including those concerning its heavy water stockpiles.
