The Managing Director of the National Iranian Oil Company said that the oil and gas industry has the most assets in Iranian oil industry. He said that for a while now without taking into consideration the asset productivity period and disorganized use of assets have had corrosion effects on these assets….. and It's a risk of corrosion for these very expensive assets” can stop production… which is why NIOC supports asset integration in this industry .

Mr. Kardor further emphasized that officials and oil experts have always been sensitive to assets, he said: "We need systems that strengthen this outlook.”

The Managing Director of the National Iranian Oil Company added: "It is estimated that $ 400 billion of assets is available to the oil industry, with offshore containing more expensive asset with increasing sensitivity ... Therefore, the private sector should be equipped with a policy of asset conservation.”

According to the Deputy Minister of Science and Technology Research Engineer of the Ministry of Petroleum said the oil industry in Iran account for 70% of the country's export. He continued that the oil industry is one of the most technologically advanced industries in the country. He said that despite the fact that the price of oil production in Iran is low, this issue should not be overlooked because it is unclear whether this price will remain consistent.

Bitaraf said "The remaining fields are labor intensive and the finished production costs are higher … so from now on physical assets are more costly as well.”

He said oil assets in the offshore sector worth $ 50 billion. In the Persian Gulf, the problem of reducing reservoir pressure and facilities is significant because the facilities have entered the second half of their life and the maintenance issue is more important.

The first conference on asset integrity management in offshore and offshore oil and gas took place by IOEC and under the supervision of the Deputy Minister of Engineering, Research and Technology of the Ministry of Petroleum on 25 and 26th of June 2018.
