Iran plans to privatise 47 firms in its energy sector worth $90bn and set up a holding company for these assets which it will list on four international exchanges, a National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) executive said, reported Reuters. The plan would see the oil and gas companies put under an umbrella group to attract foreign investment, Hojatollah Ghanimi-Fard, director of international affairs at NIOC, told MEED. He said the firms would also be listed in Tehran by 2014.
