According to Gulfoilandgas magazine reporting an interview with Rambler News, Germany oil firm Wintershall is in talks with Russian Gazprom for collaborating in projects in Iran. The announcement was made by Thilo Wieland, a member of Wintershall board responsible for exploration and production in Russia, Libya, South America and is coherent with the 25-year old relationships between the two oil companies.
The announcement came as Iran is recently shown an extended favor to Gazprom, as well as other Russian energy firms.
The country’s Petroleum Minister Bijan Zanganeh said in late May that the Islamic Republic had signed a basic agreement with Gazprom over the development of three major gas projects.
The details of the deals, he said, could not be disclosed due to the confidentiality of negotiations.
