Iran to sue Total if gas field information leakage confirmed
Speaking at a television talk show night, Zanganeh said Iran has given information to Total about only two out of the 30 phases of the South Pars gas field.
Total is negotiating with Iran on cooperation in development of the gas field, which is located in the Persian Gulf along the maritime border between Iran and Qatar.
If it is confirmed that Total has leaked information to Qataris, Iran will file a lawsuit and Total will have to pay compensation, Zanganeh stressed.
On February 9, chief executive of the French oil major said Total plans to make a final investment decision on a $2 billion gas project in Iran by the summer, but the decision hinges on the renewal of US sanctions waivers. ■
