Iran's De-Dollarization of Oil Is About Business, Not Politics
Iran will begin delivery of four million barrels of oil to Europe within the next 24 hours, Roknoddin Javadi, the managing director of National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) announced on Saturday.

"Two million barrels of the cargo has been purchased by France's Total and the rest has been purchased by two companies from Russia and Spain," Javadi told Iran's Shana energy news network.

The barrels have already been loaded onto tankers headed for refineries in Europe; the Russian company is going to process the oil in its refinery in Romania, Javadi said.

Many Iranian Entities Removed From US Sanctions List Placed on Another
On Thursday Iran released its competitive oil prices to European buyers for the first time since the EU and US lifted financial and economic sanctions that were associated with Iran's nuclear program, and undercut the Saudis by more than $1 a barrel.

Notices from both NIOC and Saudi Aramco show that one of Iran's main export grades, Iran Heavy, will cost $1.25 a barrel less than Saudi Arabia’s most similar crude for March deliveries.

On January 18 Roknoddin Javadi said Iran's Oil Ministry had been ordered to increase the country's daily output by 500,000 barrels following the lifting of sanctions, and Iran is aiming to raise its crude oil exports by a million barrels a day within six months of their removal.
