Meeting with the CEO of Iran's National
Petrochemical Company (NPC) on the sidelines of Milan's PLAST 2018, Saipem officials
said they were interested in cooperating with Iranian petrochemical companies
against feared re-imposition of US sanctions on Tehran after Washington's
pullout of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the nuclear deal Iran
clinched with the P5+1 group of countries back in 2015.
Reza Norouzzadeh, NPC CEO, met Saipem director on
the sidelines of the exhibition in Italy.
Cooperation with such petrochemical companies in Iran
as Tabriz, Kermanshah and Pars for improved and enhanced production capacity was
one of the main issues NPC and Saipem officials discussed during the meeting held
in Milan on May 30.
Moreover, cooperation in new development and
refinery projects as well as licensing agreements in various petrochemical facilities
in Iran were considered during the meeting.
The Italian company indicated its willingness and
readiness to join the projects in Iran.
Since 1950, Saipem has been regarded as an oil
and gas contractor and runs bran offices in over 60 countries.
