Speak­ing at an in­ter­na­tional con­fer­ence on Ira­nian en­ergy in Is­tan­bul, Amir Talebian, the ad­viser to Ira­nian Oil Min­is­ter Bi­jan Nam­dar Zan­ganeh, in­vited the Turk­ish pri­vate sec­tor to par­tic­i­pate in the coun­try’s six im­por­tant projects.

“We have de­vised six pri­or­ity projects in oil and nat­u­ral gas, which re­quires a $100-bil­lion in­vest­ment,” he said.

The in­ter­na­tional con­fer­ence on Iran en­ergy was held by Bogaz­içi Uni­ver­sity En­ergy Poli­cies Re­search Cen­ter in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Tehran Uni­ver­sity En­ergy Man­age­ment and Plan­ning Re­search In­sti­tute and Iran Cham­ber of Com­merce, In­dus­tries, Mines and Agri­cul­ture.

The ex­perts at­tend­ing the con­fer­ence high­lighted that Turkey and Iran are about to start sig­nif­i­cant en­ergy co­op­er­a­tion.

We be­lieve that part­ner­ing with Turkey in th­ese projects will yield a re­gional and global im­pact,” Talebian said in his speech at the con­fer­ence.
