Strengthening the effectiveness of Iran in regional and global energy equations


According to IRNA, the 13th government took the helm of the country in August last year, when Iran was isolated in the energy field following the withdrawal of the United States from Borjam. In practice, the oil officials of the previous government had joined hands and are doing nothing to counter these sanctions. Their hope was to revive Burjam to return to the oil market, and there was no clear diplomacy to overcome this situation.

The 13th government, however, stated that its most important slogan in the economy is not to tie people’s livelihoods to Borjam.

The slogan, which became objective in less than a year of the 13th government, and in one of the most important measures, the production and export of the country’s oil, as confirmed by international statistics and OPEC reports, has been accompanied by an increase.

In addition to increasing the export of crude oil and gas condensate, the Ministry of Oil of the 13th government has been able to increase production capacity to 3,838,000 barrels per day.

In addition, the thirteenth government put the revival of energy diplomacy on its agenda. In the first step, last winter, a gas swap was launched from Turkmenistan to the Republic of Azerbaijan. An event that was very important not only in the field of energy but also in the international and political arena, and proved that without the revival of Borjam, an effective role can be played in the energy equations of the region and the world.

Negotiations for a gas swap from Turkmenistan to the Republic of Azerbaijan began 19 days after Javad Oji’s presence at the Ministry of Oil. .

But this was the first step the 13th government took to revive Iran’s role in the energy market. After that, the Minister of Oil traveled to neighboring countries and, of course, beyond to Latin America.

In the 13th government, Iran expanded its oil and gas condensate export market to Latin America and even invested in three Venezuelan refineries to stabilize its oil exports to the region.

Regarding regional diplomacy, the Oil Minister traveled from Turkmenistan to the Republic of Azerbaijan and Oman. Trips that could be important not for Iran but for the entire Middle East oil region. During its visit to Oman, Iran agreed with the Omani side on the integrated development of Hengam Square. This is an unprecedented issue in the Middle East.

After Oman, the Minister of Oil, during his visit to the Republic of Azerbaijan last week, announced the development of joint fields between the two countries in cooperation.

But the most important event in Javad Oji’s recent visit to Baku was the signing of an agreement to increase the gas swap from Turkmenistan to the Republic of Azerbaijan.

The Minister of Oil, who left for Azerbaijan to attend the 27th Baku Energy Forum and the 27th Caspian International Oil and Gas Exhibition on June 11, signed a memorandum of understanding with the Minister of Economy of the Republic of Azerbaijan Mikhail Jabbarov to increase the volume of Turkmen gas swaps to the current level. کرد.

At present, Iran’s share of world gas trade is less than one percent, given the burning opportunities that have occurred in previous governments to increase Iran’s role in the world gas market.

At the same time, our country is the second largest holder of gas reserves in the world, and due to its strategic position, it can act as a regional energy hub and highway crossing oil and gas transmission lines to Asia and Europe.
