Police foils attempt by Romanian oil firm to steal Iranian drilling rig

TEHRAN, Aug. 22 (Mehr News Agency) - On Tuesday, local police and judiciary officials cleverly foiled an attempt by the Romanian oil firm Grup Servicii Petroliere (GSP) to steal the Iranian Orizon drilling rig stationed on the Kish Island, an informed source told the Mehr News Agency in Tehran on Tuesday.

On August 13, in a piracy act the GSP firm kidnapped two representatives of PetroIran on Fortuna drilling rig, beat them and then kicked them out of Iran's waters in the Persian Gulf.

The GSP company enjoys the backing of the Alfajr Lel Aqarat Company from the United Arab Emirates which is run by an influential sheikh and an Iranian-born manager.
