The Offshore Energy 2017 kicked off on Tuesday in Amsterdam with participation of 7550 international companies from 99 countries, including Iran, with an aim to present opportunities, capabilities and transfer of new technologies in the offshore and marine energy sectors.
In this year’s edition, 18 Iranian companies in the form of 10-membered delegations comprising managers and experts from the offshore oil and gas industry are showcasing their products and services at Iran’s pavilion.
The three-day event addresses the technical, operational and commercial challenges associated with future sector growth.
Speaking on the sidelines of the exhibition, Iranian ambassador to The Hague Alireza Jahangiri highlighted Iran and the Netherlands’ relations in the post-JCPOA era, saying the two countries have a number of plans and policies on agenda for further development of bilateral cooperation; “within this framework, the energy sector is one of the most promising sectors for expanding relations between the two countries,” he added.
“Iran’s policy is to stay away from crude oil and gas sales and move toward offshore energy,” Jahangiri said. “For this end, the Netherlands’ technology and investment can prove helpful for realization of Iran’s policies.”
