Iran and the French energy giant Total are expected to finalize a $2 billion deal by the end of the current Iranian calendar year (March 20, 2017), a report said.
“In recent months, Total has assessed petrochemical projects in Iran and reviewed the status of feedstock. Now, their final plan is ready and the contract will be finalized in near future,” Adel Salimnejad, the managing director of Iran’s Persian Gulf Holding Company (PGHC), said, Xinhua reported.
He added that Iran and Total had signed an initial deal back in January, 2015, following a lasting nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers.
Salimnejad said the French company had been studying Iran’s petrochemical sector over the past months, adding that it has already picked a project to develop for which a final agreement will be accordingly signed.
