07:17 EDTBPIran still struggling to finalize oil drilling contract terms, WSJ says
Iran is still having difficulty finalizing terms under which foreign energy companies can drill for oil there, the Wall Street Journal reports. Iranian oil officials canceled a conference scheduled for this month in London where new contracts for Western companies were supposed to be presented, with official blaming the cancellations on the inability to secure enough U.K. visas for the event, the report says. Another reason for the cancellation are conservative factions thinking that the contracts drawn up by president Hassan Rouhani's oil ministry are too generous to foreign entities, the report says, citing people familiar with the matter. Publicly traded companies in the space include BP (BP), Chevron (CVX), ConocoPhillips (COP), Exxon Mobil (XOM), Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) and Total (TOT). Reference Link
