Guidline for Iran's energy exports security policy making

Document Type : Research Article



Oil disorders during the past decades have strong attacks on the country's economy. This leads government officials to pay more attention to demand and supply of energy. The issue of energy security has become one of the components of foreign policy of countries. In a general classification, it can be considered as energy security of supply (imports) and demand (exports). Although Iran has big fossil resources but the experience of recent years shows that it is not very successful in exporting of these resources. In this article we review the definitions and indicators provided for these two concepts of energy security and investigate how to communicate them. The results of this review are considered as a guideline for Iran's energy exports security policy making.
