“In order to lay the foundations for possible further activities in the region, in April 2016 Wintershall signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) on possible future cooperation and has examined potential oil projects since then. The economic conditions and the geopolitical environment are of decisive importance for the realization of such projects," a company spokesman said.
