the sector had accelerated its growth rate to the highest level in 3 months during March.

there is little chance of a breakthrough in talks on the Iranian nuclear agreement,
which means that there is no need to rely on more Iranian raw materials in fuel markets.

the Iranian Ministry for Foreign Affairs

On Saturday, the Iranian Ministry for Foreign Affairs announced that it
rejects any solution that could lead to a “gradual” lifting of US sanctions against Tehran.
This position is related to Friday’s announcement that, as of Tuesday,
Iran and the United States will hold indirect talks in Vienna as a part of broader
negotiations to restore the 2015 nuclear agreement.
US Ministry of Affairs spokeswoman, Ned Brais said that talks would take place
in working groups to be formed by European Union with other participants, including Iran.
Representative of the European Union said that when negotiating a list of sanctions that the United States could lift,
besides nuclear obligations that Iran had to fulfill, “we must reach an agreement”.

Former US President Donald Trump

Former US President Donald Trump withdrew from the 2018 nuclear agreement and he re-imposed sanctions on Iran,
prompting Tehran to break some nuclear restrictions under the agreement.
President Joe Biden wants to revive this deal, but Washington and Tehran disagree on who should take the first step.
Goldman Sachs analysts estimate that the “Road” new Iranian nuclear agreement “will likely take several months”.
They repeat their positive view regarding rising oil prices.
On other hand, exports of Iranian crude oil increased this year – by an estimated amount of 2.7 million barrels a day- but further increases in supply are unlikely to happen until 2023, according to Goldman Sachs experts’ estimations.

Iranian nuclear talks

Iranian nuclear talks, together with high numbers of Coronavirus cases in some regions of the world,
will mean that oil prices will remain very volatile.
Iran’s penetration of agreement is unlikely to happen and even if it does,
the oil market will be able to absorb a fairly large increase in Iranian oil supplies and it will continue to use inventories.
