Russian oil firms in talks with Iran on its oilfields: Novak

Reuters – Russian oil companies could sign contracts with Iran by March 21 that would allow them to work on Iranian oilfields, Russia’s Energy Minister Alexander Novak said on Tuesday.

Novak also said Iran was ready to supply crude oil to Russia but that would depend on future agreements with the buyers of the oil.
