BIG SPRING, TX - JANUARY 19: An oil refinery is lit up in the night on January 19, 2016 in Big Spring, Texas. Global oil prices continue their downward fall with U.S. oil dropping towards $27 a barrel, its lowest since 2003, on worries about global oversupply. Following a diplomatic agreement on nuclear fuel with America, Iran has forecast it will add 500,000 barrels per day to global production, following the lifting of sanctions.

Iran to Publicly Sell Shares of Four State-Owned Oil Refineries

Iran’s government spokesman says shares of four refineries will begin to be offered to the public soon.
Ali Rabii said public offerings of shares of oil refineries in Isfahan, Tehran, Tabriz and Bandar Abbas will start on June.
He noted among the key measures adopted by the government to spur economic growth is to offer state-held shares and stocks.
This initiative, he added, will trigger re-investment in the economy and industry, which is the key contributor to the boosting of production, stimulation of employment and new investments.
“The government is pursuing the strategy of offering shares and handing over state-run companies as another step towards downsizing the government and expanding the public sector and private industrial sectors in the country,” he added.
