    TEHRAN, July 4 (MNA) – Oil Minister Rostam Qasemi has announced that oil reserves of up to 6 billion barrels have been discovered in southwest Iran.
    The reserves are located around the Yadavaran oilfield in Khuzestan province, Qasemi said.

    “With this new discovery the volume of retrievable oil reserves in the country increased 5 to 6 billion barrels,” Shana news agency quoted Qasemi as saying.

    It had previously been reported that Iran’s recoverable oil and natural gas reserves stood at 154.8 billion barrels and 33.1 trillion cubic meters, respectively.

    With the new oil discovery Iran’s oil reserves stand at about 160 billion barrels.

    The country’s oil and natural gas reserves will last up to 80 years and 150 years respectively, if the current production and export levels remain steady.

    Qasemi went on to say that output at the Yadavaran oilfield is currently about 20,000 barrels per day, which will be increased to 200,000 barrels per day in the future.

    On March 3, oil official Mahmoud Mohaddes announced that a large oilfield, which holds huge amounts of high-quality crude, had been discovered in southwestern Khuzestan province.

    It's not about the oil itself. It's about how the oil is being traded (whether it's being traded with or w/out the US currency), who is drilling the oil (American and Euro companies versus Eastern companies) and most importantly how much risk a certain entity possesses to shipping routes. Also, having your companies present in an oil producing nation as well as having influence on the nation's govt means you can control the flow of oil, thus making sure the oil markets are stabalized.

    Iran ranks third in Asia and 11th in the world in terms of iron reserves.

    You don't know what you're talking about, chief. The U.S. gets about 2% of its oil from Iraq, and we PAY for it. I WISH we would steal some if we're getting accused of it. But I know, it SOUNDS COOL to say the U.S. steals oil even though it's B.S.

    Is Iran going to learn how to refine the oil into gasoline so they don't have to import it ?:rofl:

    Iran relies on Indian and Chinese refineries for that.

    We don't import gasoline since 2009, not only we don't import it, we have exported gasoline to Egypt and Iraq as well. Maybe only Venezuela has helped us, and for that reason you wanted to punish their oil industry that Chavez showed you the middle finger and they cut their ties with you for interference in their affairs.

    Iran relies on nothing related to energy on Indians. Indians rely on Iran for energy. India must meet her own demands first I think.
    The only humors that Iran is importing gasoline is due to the Americans that claim Venezuela is exporting gasoline to Iran. Since 2009, the house of legislation passed a bill to punish any state that sells gasoline to Iran. I doubt any state, except Venezuela, had ignored the US bill. And the reason that I accept Venezuela is because the USA and Venezuela cut their ties over Iran-Venezuela ties. So it's very probable that Venezuela helped Iran to import gasoline. Moreover, Venezuela is a major oil and chemicals producing nation, unlike India.
