Talking at a ceremony on Sunday in Tehran, Owiji mentioned Iran exported 190 million barrels of oil greater than it did two years in the past and 83 million barrels greater than the earlier yr.
Additionally, the quantity of fuel exports this yr elevated by 15 % in comparison with the earlier yr, Owji mentioned.
He added that the international alternate earnings of the nation are larger than the quantity wanted.
Exports have risen regardless of the American sanctions, which had been re-imposed on Iran following Washington’s withdrawal from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal (JCPOA) in 2018. The sanctions have primarily been designed to paralyze Iran’s oil exports and banking ties with overseas.
The rise within the Iranian oil gross sales come regardless of headwinds equivalent to a stall within the talks on reviving the deal and competitors out there brought on by discounted Russian crude.
