Iran Scares Brent Crude Prices Down Again

If Iran halts its nuclear programs, the country’s energy market will be open for international trade on January 20th after more than 20 years of Western sanctions. Iran’s exports are currently capped at a million barrels per day, but the country’s vast reserves could allow it to increase its contribution to global supply, and eventually drive down prices.

British Petroleum estimates that Iran has 33.6 trillion cubic meters of gas in its reserves, and when an interim agreement was announced back in November, the price of Brent crude took its biggest drop of the month, falling three percent in a single day.
