The Caspian Sea Locks Opened in the Oil Sector

Spotlight Activity: The Caspian Sea Locks Opened in the Oil Sector

According to the reports, the Iranian oil minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh said: “On the sidelines of the Iranian President’s visit to Azerbaijan and the talks on developing cooperation, agreement was reached for cooperation in developing two oil fields in the Caspian Sea.“ He continued, “Each country will have an equal share in the development of these two oil fields.” Zanganeh said at the end, “A very important step has been taken, and the Caspian Sea has opened in the oil sector.”

Status: Falling Behind

Under the 2015 Paris Climate Change Agreement, countries agreed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and limit the rise in global average temperatures to well below two degrees Celsius and as close as possible to 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial levels. A strong focus on renewable energy sources and a substantial decline in fossil fuel production and consumption is key to achieving the Paris Agreement goals. Opening the Caspian Sea to more oil drilling is a step in the wrong direction.
