Iran delays London oil conference to Feb. 2015

Iran delays London oil conference to Feb. 2015

“We want to provide for all the companies to participate and we know they will have difficulties before Nov. 24,” Mehdi Hosseini, the head of the Oil Contracts Revision Committee, told Reuters by telephone on Monday.
The London conference, previously scheduled for Nov. 3, will take place in late February 2015.
He expressed hope that Iran would reach a comprehensive nuclear deal with the world powers by the deadline.
Iran and six global powers have given themselves until Nov. 24 to reach agreement on Iran’s nuclear program whereby Iran would limit its nuclear enrichment activities. In exchange, the West would lift sanctions that are hurting Iran’s oil-dependent economy.
“American companies have the most problems legally because of the sanctions. We thought it would be better to postpone the conference to provide an opportunity for them and all foreign companies to come back,” he said.
Hosseini said Iran’s new contract, known as the Iran Petroleum Contract would be a longer duration that the previous “buyback” contract. Iran will offer more than 20 new projects, a mix of exploration, green and brown fields, he added.
He declined to say which companies Iran had been in talks with until sanctions had been lifted.
“Our model will provide flexibility and can be fitted depending on the project,” he said.
Iran has previously said the new model for oil field development contracts aims to tempt back foreign energy companies with 25-year deals.
