Novak: return of Iranian oil to world market needs to be taken into consideration
The return of Iranian oil to the world market needs to be taken into account, but first, there has to be an understanding of the exact schedule and volume limits, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak said.
"Of course, this must be taken into account. Because it affects the balance of supply and demand. You just need to accurately understand the return schedule, what are the maximum volumes. But it all depends on when this will be done", Sputnik cited Novak as saying.
The International Energy Agency (IEA) said in its oil market report this month that Iran could bring its oil production to 3.8 million barrels per day by 2022 and become the key source of the global oil output growth if the sanctions are lifted.
