06:39 EDTBPEuro, U.S. oil and gas groups to find tough competition in Iran, WSJ says
European and U.S. oil and gas firms drawn to Iran as sanctions lessen can expect not only opportunities, but also Iranian companies offering tough competition or joint ventures, the Wall Street Journal reports. Though no Iran-based companies have the clout of firms such as Exxon Mobil (XOM) or Schlumberger (SLB), companies that can take on engineering tasks are emerging and growing in Iran, the report says. If the Iran nuclear agreement comes into effect and sanctions are lifted against Iran sometime soon, those Iranian companies will be well positioned to compete for tens of billions of dollars worth of service contracts, the report adds. Other publicly traded companies in the space include BP (BP), Chevron (CVX), ConocoPhillips (COP), Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) and Total (TOT). Reference Link
