Greece discusses crude oil purchases from Iran – Greek energy minister

Home »  News »  Greece discusses crude oil purchases from Iran – Greek energy minister

Greece held talks on Friday on restarting crude oil purchases from Iran after the lifting of nuclear-related international sanctions last week, Greek Energy Minister Panos Skourletis said.

Skourletis met Iran’s Deputy Oil Minister Amir Hossein Zamaninia in Athens.
‘They (Iran) are positively disposed towards and think that Greece can be the European conduit for them to re-enter the market,’ Skourletis told Reuters.
Hellenic Petroleum, Greece’s biggest oil refiner, was a major buyer of Iranian crude, which accounted for about 20 percent of its annual crude oil imports before sanctions were imposed.
