In line with implementation of policies of Resistance Economy, the main priority will be diligent effort to ink new oil contracts for development of oil and gas field; a goal which will be achieved by trusting Almighty God and your support as well as maximum reliance on participation of domestic exploration and production companies, contractors, local manufacturers and strengthening existing capacities and continuing strategic cooperation with universities and authentic research centers with the aim of promoting and transfer of national technology.
