Masoud Besharati, head of the Tehran office of Pergas, told a press conference at Sharif University of Technology on Sunday that the consortium comprises a chain of companies active in various areas ready for investment, holding training course and transfer of technologies in oil and gas industries to Iranian companies.
The National Iranian South Oil Company has signed its first non-disclosure agreement (NDA) with Pergas for carrying out studies over two oilfields in Iran.
The consortium comprises 11 European, Canadian and Asian firms as well as the Sharif University of Technology and has signed the NDA for holding studies on Karanj (Asmari, Pabdeh, and Khami oil deposits) and Shadegan oilfields (Asmari and Bangestan reserves).
Based on the deal, the consortium will have 6 months to hand over the result of its studies on the fields to the NISOC. Pergas may submit its proposal for development of the fields sooner if it is ready.
Minister of Petroleum Bijan Zanganeh has spent a long time on investigation of the framework of NISOC’s new framework of oil contracts.
Over 60 companies are currently in talks with the NISOC for cooperation with the company under the new framework of the contracts.
