Iranian Oil Ministry spokesman Alireza Nikzad-Rahbar has said Iran has
not been in talks with Russia for the sale of crude oil to its northern
neighbour, ISNA reported.
Referring to some news which has been published by some media outlets, Nikzad-Rahbar said that there is basically no infrastructure for transferring crude oil from southern Iran to the Caspian Sea.
On Tuesday, the Mehr News Agency reported that Russia has recently expressed interest in importing crude oil from Iran.
Tehran and Moscow have been holding talks in this regard. Russian officials have proposed launching a pipeline to transfer oil from Iran's southern oilfields to the Caspian Sea and then carried by tankers to Russian oil terminals, according to the report.
Currently, the National Iranian Oil Company has started dredging operations around the Neka oil terminal in order to provide giant tankers with the possibility to berth at the terminal, the report said.
