Iran exports first oil shipment to Europe since nuclear deal
Iran’s official news agency says the country has exported its crude shipment to Europe for the first time
Iran’s official news agency says the country has exported its crude shipment to Europe for the first time since it reached a landmark nuclear deal with world powers last month.
Sunday’s IRNA report quotes Deputy Oil Minister Rokneddin Javadi as saying the shipment was the first after five years. He called the shipment “A new chapter” in Iran’s oil industry but did not elaborate.
IRNA said several western tankers have loaded Iran’s oil in recent days.
Iran expects an economic bonanza after the lifting of sanctions, which will allow it to access overseas assets and sell crude oil more freely.
