Talking to Shana, Hossein Hosseinzadeh added, “Although sanctions have their own impacts, the current government has managed to carry out acceptable measures through great efforts and determination.”
The country’s oil sales stood at less than 0.5 million barrels per day (bpd) when the current administration took over,” recalled the lawmaker, “but now we have witnessed an increase in oil and condensate exports thanks to the Oil Ministry’s positive approach and firm decision on promoting energy diplomacy”.
A member of Parliament’s Energy Committee, Hosseinzadeh continued, “As the oil minister announced, the country’s oil exports doubled through strong diplomacy under the harshest conditions possible during the 13th administration.”
The parliamentarian pointed to expansion of relations and commercial cooperation with regional and Latin American countries as other factors behind the hike in oil production and exports under the incumbent administration.
The legislator also referred to exports of technical and engineering services in the energy sector and concluded, “We should not be ignorant of domestic capacities for developing, supplying, maintaining, renovating, and rebuilding the oil, gas, and petrochemical fleet.”
