Iran oil productionManaging Director of the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC), Ali Kardor, revealed that Iran has signed new initial agreements with foreign oil companies. These contracts, which involve the study of Iranian oilfields, were signed with Austria's OMV, France's Total , Germany's Wintershall, Indonesia's Pertamina, Russia's Lukoil and Zarubezhneft. Many other oil firms, however, are still waiting for Iran to establish its new model for oil & gas contracts (IPCs).
