LONDON (June 23, 2015) - We are pleased to announce that FGE Chairman, Dr. Fereidun Fesharaki, will be presenting a special seminar on "Iran After Sanctions: A World of Opportunities in the Oil and Gas Sector."  The seminar will be attended by CEOs and senior executives of Japan's oil and gas industry as well as senior officials from METI and Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Iran's Ambassador to Japan, HE Nazar Ahari, will be present at the seminar.

Date:  July 17, 2015
Time:  2:00-4:00 pm.  Registration begins at 1:30 pm.
Location:  CLSA Securities Japan, Sumo Room, Shiodome Sumitomo Bldg., 16th Floor, 1-9-2, Higashi-Shinbashi, Minato-ku, Tokyo 105-0021   

The seminar will focus on the prospects for upstream, downstream, trading, and natural gas within a post-sanctions Iran. 

Iran's oil and gas sectors have been squeezed under the severe sanctions imposed by the European nations and the United States. Oil production has been hampered, building and upgrading of refineries have been slow, and exports of crude oil and natural gas have been restricted. Iran has huge resources, particularly in natural gas. These resources are likely to be opened with the removal of the sanctions.

In addition to the above mentioned topics, Dr. Fesharaki will also be discussing:

  • What is the growth prospects in the Iranian oil and gas sectors post-sanctions? 
  • Where are the new business and trading opportunities for the international oil and gas companies?
  • How will Iran's role in OPEC be impacted?
  • What does all this mean for the price of oil?

Dr. Fesharaki is a pre-eminent expert on Iran's oil and gas sectors. Born in Iran, he is Chairman and Founder of FGE, which has a major team of consultants dealing with every aspect of Iran's oil and gas industry from offices around the world in London, Singapore, Dubai, Beijing, and Tokyo, among others. Furthermore, an Iran office will be established after the removal of the sanctions.

FGE is offering an Iran Commercial Advisory Service to assist international investors in upstream, downstream, infrastructure, technology, and natural gas export sector in Iran with specialists in every sector to provide analytical as well as practical assistance and hands on support.
