Over the past years, the circumstances in Iran under sanctions were such that international oil and gas companies have been banned from making any investments in Iran oil and gas industry; in addition, due to lack of financial resources and appropriate equipment, local companies have also been unable to implement major upstream and downstream oil and gas projects.

Upon lifting the sanctions, Iran upstream oil industry is expected to witness significant growth and attract new investments over the short, medium to long term.
