Iran Discovered 13 Oil Fields In Last Year

From Iran’s Press TV:

Iran discovers 13 oil fields in 1 year

Mon Aug 30, 2010

Iran has discovered 13 new oil and gas fields with in-place reserves of 14 billion barrels of oil and 45 trillion cubic feet of natural gas within the past 12 months.

The Islamic Republic has also exported around 2,200,600 barrels of oil per day in the past year, according to a report published on the Oil Ministry’s SHANA news agency.

The report added that Iran’s revenue from oil exports during the past year reached $69.1 billion.

Lest we forget, there are still no sanctions on Iran’s oil export industry.

Earlier this year, National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) director of exploration Mahmoud Mohaddes announced plans to explore new reserves of 500 million barrels of oil and 5 trillion cubic feet of gas per year during a five year plan…

No moratoriums for them.

But where are the environmentalists?

    Oil sanctions, moratoriums, or environmental protests are overkill. Iran is switching to nuclear energy, remember?

  2. OxyCon says:

    Good thing they’re building those nuclear reactors since they are running out of oil.

  3. GetBackJack says:

    I got hold of the original press release and that’s not what it says. Original press release states – “Iran Discovers Photoshop”

  4. Liberals Demise says:

    Iran discovers that they can flip off the world and build their nukes unfettered.
    “Oil and Gas fields are souvenirs”
