Widespread Financial Corruption in Kangan Petro Refinery

Widespread financial corruption in Kangan Petro Refinery. An oil contract, if finalized, will bring further corruption to companies affiliated with the Ministry of Oil.

The LPG site at Kangan Petro Refinery, intended to supply ships through the Ahdaaf Company, is in the process of finalizing a contract with an individual named Somayeh Norouzi, known as Somayeh Noor, in the UAE. She plans to finance the project by receiving 15% of the contract, amounting to $30 million.

Meanwhile, the individual in question has corruption cases in both Iran and the UAE. However, due to her connections with the son of a senior IRGC commander, she has benefited from such advantages.

If this amount is paid and financing is not secured, other companies affiliated with the Ministry of Oil claim that due to sanctions, they cannot pursue the matter. The Ministry of Oil and banks that issued guarantees state that if such disgraceful contracts like the catalyst deal, which resulted in a loss of over $30 million under Ehsan Tahiri, the son of Commander Tahiri, are not prevented, the documents of this corruption and the individuals involved will be sent to anti-sanction circumvention authorities.

Somayeh Norouzi, also known as Somayeh Noor, born in Chadegan, is one of the suspects in money laundering and economic disruption cases.

Somayeh Noor has a partnership with the son of an IRGC commander named Mohammad Ali Ahangaran.

The situation at Kangan Petro Refinery is a stark reminder of the pervasive corruption that can infiltrate even the most critical sectors of a nation's economy. The alleged financial misconduct involving significant figures within the Ministry of Oil and their affiliates highlights the challenges faced in combating such deep-rooted corruption.

The involvement of individuals like Somayeh Norouzi, who, despite having a history of financial misconduct, manage to secure lucrative contracts through high-level connections, underscores the systemic issues within the industry. The potential fallout from such deals, including the misallocation of millions of dollars and the inability of the Ministry of Oil to take action due to sanctions, further complicates efforts to ensure transparency and accountability.

As these allegations come to light, it is crucial for anti-corruption bodies and oversight institutions to rigorously investigate and address these issues. Only through stringent enforcement of anti-corruption measures and increased transparency can there be hope for reforming the systems that allow such corruption to thrive. The case of Kangan Petro Refinery serves as a critical example of the need for ongoing vigilance and reform in the fight against financial corruption.
