Mansour Shokrollahi added the rise in crude oil exports shows that the energy diplomacy exercised by the government and the Oil Ministry has worked, Shana reported.
The member of Parliament’s Energy Committee pointed to the recent inauguration of Phase 11 of the South Pars gas field as another achievement of the current administration.
He said the Oil Ministry has demonstrated Iranian experts’ ability to do the job despite sanctions.
“We have great capacities in the oil sector and have so far signed good contracts with different countries,” said the lawmaker, predicting a bright future for the Oil Ministry.
Not only have oil production and exports jumped, but also debts have been collected, concluded Shokrollahi.
