Iran has more than 15.8% of the approved gas reserves of the world. Many of major gas fields and reserves of Iran are located in border territories and shared between Iran and its neighboring countries. In this regard, Iran gas has a strategical situation and has confronted some challenges. Domestically, energy consumption and allocating it to different economic sectors need adequate decision-making and accurate planning; externally, the energy export is one of the best ways to enter into the various areas of the world, increase the foreign incomes, establish diplomatic relations with different countries and plan the profound political and economic relations.
Petropars as a leader company in Oil and Gas Industry and the First Ranking E&P (Exploration and Production) company in Iran has an undeniable power in execution of mega projects in the energy sector. Petropars is well informed that Petroleum Projects have diversity features in terms of location, size, capital, technology, risks, and it is well aware of the fact that evaluating oil, and gas exploration projects are a complex and challenging operation.
Petropars considers that the main sources of uncertainty in decision-making concerning the value of a project are the quantity and quality of a Field’s Reserves, an internal variable defined by geological factors, oil prices and external variables defined by market conditions. On the other hand, because of the importance of the Petroleum Industry, Petropars gives high significance to the Economic Feasibility Study, Finance and Contract Schemes of the Projects.
The reason behind this approach is the critical role played by the Petroleum Industry, economy and foreign trade. In general, Petroleum Industry is involved with the management and handling of oil and gas resources to satisfy the country's needs (households and industrial sectors) and to export oil and gas in order to gain foreign currencies which are necessary for funding the country's social and economic requirements.
Advanced knowledge about the fundamentals and techniques of a modern Economic Feasibility Study and Finance, as well as specific knowledge about the requirements of establishing and executing Petroleum Development Projects, all are necessary tools to conduct a systematic study that enables the parties involved to make reasonable decisions about available investment opportunities in Petroleum Industry.
In order to discuss the legal, political and commercial aspects of a project, Petropars serves as a stepping-stone toward optimizing a project once it is started. The Feasibility Study provides all data necessary for the investment decision. Possible financing is considered along with the feasibility study, because finance has become a pivoted part of the current Oil and Gas Exploration and Development Projects.
Petropars successfully conducted feasibility srudies and financed around $ 14 Billion in the field of energy in Iran’s Industry. Finance first discusses the salient features of the projects and then shed lights on recent trends in the market that underpin its importance to Oil and Gas Industry. Financing conditions have a direct effect on total costs and thus on the Financial Feasibility of the Projects.
Petropars as a pioneer in financing Oil and Gas Projects, has experienced many successful projects in recent years.
