INU - On Monday, Bloomberg reported that global oil prices had hit a three month low, in part because of increased production by the Islamic Republic of Iran. Brent futures dropped by as much as 1.4 percent, according to the report. And this comes at a time when the global oil market is still struggling to recover from a precipitous drop last year, which caused prices to bottom out at about half of their previous figures.

In his November 13 article for Bloomberg, Sam Wilken wrote about the boost in oil output at three western fields in Iran.  Rival OPEC producer, Saudi Arabia, called for a measures such as a collective output cut, later this month, to help rebalance the market.

The report was indicative of the ongoing push by some Western entities to engage with and invest in the Islamic Republic, in spite of lingering obstacles and Iran’s persistent anti-Western activities and rhetoric. But perhaps the more significant aspect of that report was relevant not to Iranian-Western relations but to Iranian-Arab relations.

This opportunity for investors faces criticism from leading former diplomats and lawmakers, who warn that, “Business risks abound in Iran, a country where corruption is rampant and a sanctioned terrorist organization--the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC)--wields enormous economic power over the very sectors being shopped at the summit: oil and gas, petrochemicals, and infrastructure.”
