Iran hopes to finalise and sign a $2 billion deal with France’s Total to develop South Pars Phase 11 in two months, Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh was quoted as saying by Iran Daily.
Meanwhile, Patrick Pouyanne CEO of Total said last week that the company plans to make a final decision on investment in a $2-billion gas project in Iran by summer, the report added, citing Trend News Agency.
