The Iran Nuclear Deal Under Trump: What Oil Companies Should Be Aware Of
President Donald Trump’s election has clouded the future of the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action between Iran and the P5+1 nations, which curtailed Iran’s ability to build nuclear weapons and in return eased certain economic sanctions imposed by the U.S., the EU and the UN Security Council. Trump vowed during his campaign to make it a priority of his presidency to dismantle the accord, calling it “one of the worst deals ever made.” Recent remarks by members of his administration suggest Trump is seeking renegotiation of key terms of the accord and exploring how to tighten enforcement, such as by insisting that the International Atomic Energy Agency demand access to Iran military sites.
In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of thought leaders brought together by The Knowledge Group will analyze the main features of the JCPOA, its most controversial provisions and the likelihood of the accord being altered or abrogated as a result of changing American policy towards the region. The potential impact on the oil and gas industry, due to Iran’s position in the oil production market, will also be analyzed.
Key topics include:
- Overview of Iran Nuclear Deal
- Role of International Atomic Energy Agency
- Current State of Compliance
- Flash Points for U.S. Policy Shifts
- Continuing Sanctions Against Iranian Interests
- Effect of Iranian Withdrawal from Accord
