Iran's first private section consignment of crude oil has been exported not by the private section consortium but directly by an independent private firm.
The consignment has been exported as barter trade and will be shipped to the buyer via non-Iranian tankers, Hassan Khosrojerdi, the head of the union of Iranian exporters of oil derivatives told ISNA on Sunday.
He said the private company has exported the consignment with no discount and refused to give further details about the deal.
Iranian private sector has made many services in different oil industry sections but this is the first time the crude oil export monopoly of the government has been broken and this could be a new chapter in the field of crude oil export.
