Iran says no OPEC member can take other member’s share of oil exports

August 19, 2018

TEHRAN- No OPEC member country can take over another member’s share of oil exports, Iran’s permanent envoy to Vienna-based international organizations said in a meeting with OPEC Secretary-General Mohammad Barkindo on Sunday.

Kazem Gharibabadi made the remarks referring to Saudi Arabia’s offer to pump more oil in the face of U.S. sanctions on Iranian oil sales, Shana reported.
“No country is allowed to take over the share of other members for production and exports of oil under any circumstance, and the OPEC Ministerial Conference has not issued any license for such actions,” the envoy said.
In May, U.S. president pulled out of an international nuclear deal with Iran and announced sanctions against the country. Washington is pushing allies to cut imports of Iranian oil to zero and will impose a new round of sanctions on Iranian oil sales in November.
