VIENNA, June 3. /TASS/. Russian oil and gas major Lukoil is interested in returning to Iran after sanctions are lifted, Lukoil’s CEO Vagit Alekperov said on Wednesday after the meeting with Iran’s oil minister Bijan Namdar Zangeneh.
The dialog with Iran’s oil minister is highly meaningful, Alekperov said. "We are currently exploring opportunities of entering Iran after sanctions are lifted. Lukoil discovered the Anaran field in Iran in its time. Certainly, we are interesting in returning to that field," Lukoil’s CEO said.
No other projects in Iran except Anaran were discussed, Alekperov said. "We are recently focused on the field we know," he added.
Iran is interested in bringing major investors, Lukoil’s CEO said. "It is a critical stage now; the point is laws on Iranian fields’ development to be passed after sanctions are lifted," Alekperov said. Iran will hold a conference for foreign investors on that matter, he added.
"We are highly optimistic and look forward proactive working in Iran after abolishment of sanctions," Lukoil’s CEO said.
