Catalysts worth $9m exported to Russia in six months

EghtesadOnline: Iran’s deputy oil minister for international affairs and trade said an Iranian knowledge-based firm exported various types of catalysts worth some $9 million in the first 6 months of the current Iranian calendar year.

Ahmad Asadzadeh, who made the remarks on the sidelines of the 6th Russian Energy Week International Forum in Moscow, added that the catalyst exported to Russia in the previous year fetched Iran $8 million.

Asadzadeh pointed to talks held between Iran’s Oil Minister Javad Owji, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak, and some managers of Russia’s oil and gas sectors, saying the two sides exchanged views on Russia’s participation in development studies of three Iranian oil fields, Shana reported.

Owji held serious talks on Iran’s plan to become a gas hub, said the deputy oil minister, adding negotiations were held in Russia as the two countries’ delegations are exchanging expertise with the aim of putting the creation of a gas hub into action.

Some Russian companies voiced their willingness to invest in Iran’s petrochemical sector during Owji’s visit to Moscow, mentioned Asadzadeh.

Owji and Novak, as the heads of the Iran-Russia Joint Economic Commission, met to discuss the topics of the commission’s session in Tehran in November.

Accompanied by a delegation and Iran’s Ambassador to Moscow Kazem Jalali, Owji arrived in the Russian capital on Wednesday at the invitation of Novak to participate in the 6th Russian Energy Week International Forum.

He attended the forum’s opening ceremony addressed by Russian President Vladimir Putin on the same day.

The Iranian oil minister had also a meeting with Russian energy giant Gazprom Alexei Miller and visited some oil and gas companies. / MEHR
