Iran’s Petroleum Industry did not generally do well during the past Iranian year (ending 20th March 2009).
The lackluster situation was especially evident in the Industry’s virtual failure to either start fresh projects
of any importance or complete the ones started previously.

The situation had arisen partly because of a more vigorous implementation of the Western sanctions
against Iran, stemming out of the renowned nuclear standoff, and partly due to the global economic meltdown.
The latter also caused a freefall in the global price of oil, which surfaced in Iran at the beginning of the second half of past year.

The net result of the said facts was that not only Iran was more rigorously barred from having access to foreign
monetary resources, but because of the nosedive in the price of crude oil, the country’s foreign revenues started to plummet as well.

In addition to what went above, lack of stability at managerial levels, unsteady planning and lack of courage in making valiant decisions (because of absence of risk-taking managers) all contributed to the dreary atmosphere in Iran’s Petroleum Industry last year.

Despite that grim picture of Iran’s Petroleum Industry, in line with its practice of covering all information, facts,
figures and statistics of the Industry, IranOilGas Network has embarked on publishing its 3rd successive Yearbook covering all that took place in Iran’s Petroleum Industry during the past Iranian year, 20th March 2008 to 20th March 2009.

In this edition of the Yearbook, the states of affairs of all projects underway during the past year in the Industry
are reported and include; Exploration, Seismic, Development of Oil & Gas Fields, Oil & Gas Refining and
Petrochemical Projects.

Besides, this Yearbook provides all statistics about Oil and Gas Exploration, Production, Consumption &
Export, Production/Import of Oil Products and Export of Oil & Petrochemical Products in the said year.
Similar statistics of few previous years are also provided for comparison.

IranOilGas Network has taken great care in ensuring that the statistics and figures provided in its Yearbooks
are all authentic, reliable and as per information disclosed by official sources and the database available
with the Network.

Note: In this Yearbook, ‘last year’ means the Iranian year starting on 20th March 2008 and ending on 20th March 2009.
