|Qamsari appointed NIOC director for international affairs||
TEHRAN - Mohsen Qamsari has been appointed to the post of director for international affairs of the National Iranian Oil Company, the Mehr News Agency reported.
Qamsari replaced Mohammad-Ali Khatibi.
Qamsari has also served as the managing director of the National Iranian Gas Company. He was dismissed as the NIOC director for international affairs last year.
Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh has pledged to boost Iran’s oil output.
“My first action will be to bring the country’s oil production capacity back to 2005” levels, Zanganeh was quoted as saying by Shana.
Iran produced 2.56 million barrels a day in July, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The country produced about 4 million barrels a day in 2005, according to Bloomberg.
“I don’t mean output should be immediately returned to its past level because it may not be possible due to sanctions,” Zanganeh said. “But stable production capacity should be created so that we will be able, under any circumstances, to benefit from oil for our domestic needs.”
