As the voice of the petroleum industry’s private sector, uniting all seven major associations for the first time, Petroleum Conference – Iran 2017 will be addressed by Iran’s minister of petroleum Bijan Namdar Zanganeh and president deputy in Science and Technology Sorena Sattari.

Several high level international speakers will also present their expertise at the conference from amongst the leading international oil companies and the service companies. Delegates will obtain updates on current commercial projects and an insight into the investment opportunities presented by Iran’s petroleum sector. Focused workshops will explore the regulatory and fiscal frameworks supporting partnership, growth and development and how to win and develop business in Iran, the organisers said. The conference also has the support of the chairman of the Iranian Parliament, Ali Larijani, for its role in developing the private sector.

The associated international exhibition will provide all companies with a commercial platform to showcase their products, services and technologies. It will also provide important networking opportunities to encourage the formation of business partnerships. In addition, there will be a series of social events and round table discussions to facilitate this, which are open to all delegates.

Dr Seyyed Hamid Hosseini, head of the Petroleum Conference-Iran 2017 said, “Oil and gas sector has always been the motor drive of Iran's economy. The development of upstream and downstream sectors is only possible if national and international capacities are utilised. The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action has provided a platform for cooperation, and we can hope that the country will pursue a growing trend.

“During the past three months, organisers of the Petroleum Conference-Iran 2016 have had productive negotiations with officials of Competition Committee, National Development Fund, Export Guarantee Fund, Export Development Bank and Iranian Council (Majlis) Energy Commission, and have made progress. By resolving national issues, we will be able to cooperate with international investors and counterparts, and the petroleum conference of 2017 will be a platform for the private sector in Iran to find counterparts with the cooperation of international experts and specialists.”
