Staff writer ▼ | January 8, 2016
Vice president of Denmark's Maersk said the company is gearing up to engage in Iran's upstream oil projects in the wake of the removal of the western sanctions on the country's energy sector.
After sanctions   Maersk can offer services as an oil and drilling company
"We have to wait for the complete lifting of the sanctions but our group of companies is very interested to come to Iran," said Lars Nydahl Jorgensen following a meeting between Iranian Minister of Petroleum Bijan Zangeneh and Danish Foreign Minister Kristian Jensen in Tehran.

He said Maersk can offer services not only as an oil company but as a drilling company that would be ready to engage in Iran.

"We have supply vessels for big rigs and we have tanker companies and we have a terminals company that can offer infrastructures for export," the Danish industrialist said.

He also said the Danish company is having very constructive discussions with NIOC and its subsidiaries and will continue that dialogue but "we don’t know how long that will take."

He declined to mention the name of the field the company would engage in Iran after the sanctions removal.
