In late March 2021, China and Iran signed a cooperation pact to stimulate investments in Iran’s oil, gas and petrochemical infrastructure. We refer to this pact as the ‘Iran-China deal’ throughout this manuscript. This deal attracted substantial attention for its effects on global oil markets and the geopolitics of the region. Reports suggest that China may invest as much as $400 billion in Iran’s infrastructure and oil sector over 25 years owing to the deal. In exchange, Iran will supply oil to China at below-market prices.
