Iran Sees ‘No Threat’ From Oil at $25 as Prices Keep Falling

Updated on

OPEC has no immediate plan to cut its output target for crude, and Iran is strong enough to withstand a deeper slump in prices even if the country must sell at $25 a barrel, Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh said.

“If the oil prices drop to $25 a barrel, there will yet again be no threat posed to Iran’s oil industry,” Zanganeh told reporters on Jan. 19 at a conference in Tehran, according to the state-run Fars news agency.
