Iran on Sunday claimed to have found a new oil field that would boost its supply by a third — delivering the news with a shot at US sanctions.
“I am telling the White House that in the days when you sanctioned the sale of Iranian oil and pressured our nation, the country’s dear workers and engineers were able to discover 53 billion barrels of oil in a big field,” Iran’s president, Hassan Rouhani, said in a public announcement.
Rouhani said the field was located in Iran’s southern Khuzestan province, home to its crucial oil industry, with the 53 billion barrels added to Iran’s reserves of roughly 150 billion.
“This is a small gift by the government to the people of Iran,” he said in a speech from the central city of Yazd, according to Agence France-Presse.
“We announce to America today that we are a rich nation, and despite your enmity and cruel sanctions, Iranian oil industry workers and engineers discovered this great oil field.”
