‘159.

Oil industry Pension Fund Investment Company (OPIC)

No 234, Taleghani St, Tehran, Iran

OPIC provides significant support to the Government of Iran by providing financial resources and financing services for oil and gas development projects to a variety of entities linked to the Government of Iran, including subsidiaries of state owned companies (NIOC). Also, OPIC has owned IOEC (Iranian Offshore Engineering Construction Co.) which is EU designated for providing logistical support to the Government of Iran.

The oil and gas sector constitutes a significant source of funding for the Government of Iran, and there is a potential connection between Iran's oil revenue derived from its energy sector and the funding of Iran's proliferation sensitive activities.

The Managing Director of OPIC is Naser Maleki, who is a United Nations designated individual on the grounds of being Head of the Shahid Hemat Industrial Group (SHIG) and also a MODAFL (Iranian Ministry of Defence and Armed Forces Logistics) official overseeing the work on the Shahab 3 ballistic missile programme (Iran's long range ballistic missile currently in service). SHIG is a United Nations designated entity on the grounds that it is a subordinate entity of Aerospaces Industries Organisation (AIO, which is an EU-designated entity) and involved in Iran's ballistic missile programme. Accordingly, OPIC is directly associated with Iran's proliferation-sensitive nuclear activities or the development of nuclear weapons delivery systems.
