Iran: Minister of Petroleum, Javad Owji

Born in 1966 he received a degree in oil engineering from the Petroleum University of Technology in Ahwaz.

He has worked much of his life in oil related public office and was deputy oil minister and head of the National Iranian Gas Company from 2009 to 2013. He has served on various oil boards. In August 2021 Javad was confirmed as Minister of Petroleum in Iran.

His approach to Iranian oil sales is to focus on “oil for goods and oil for investment,” Owji said, “We will hopefully find new oil markets.”

Hopes for a nuclear deal within Iran are key to helping free the economy and improving living conditions.
