TEHRAN -- Iranian oil minister Javad Owji, amid intermittent exports of gas and power to Iraq, has appointed a special energy envoy to help bolster Tehran’s ties with its neighbor, which is under U.S. pressure to wean itself off Iranian energy imports.
Owji, in a ministerial decree published by state energy news agency Shana, appointed Abbas Beheshti to follow up on the settlement of gas export dues and to identify other common interests that include oil and oil product trading and private sector investments in the two countries’ oil industries.
