"At least five companies with U.S. government contracts were in Tehran last week to attend the Iran Oil Show, a several day conference that enables international corporations to hobnob with top Iranian officials and plan for a full return to Tehran’s lucrative energy market, according to an analysis of the 600 companies that attended the oil expo. At least 20 of the companies in attendance at the oil show maintain a U.S. presence or have contracts with the U.S. government, eliciting concern from watchdog groups that these companies could be helping Iran breach U.S. sanctions…The overwhelming attendance at this year’s Iran Oil Show—a reported 300 percent increase over past years—serves as another sign that the Obama administration’s recent rollback in sanctions on Iran has been viewed as a green light to reenter the Iranian marketplace…'It is a telling indication of the weakening of the international sanctions regime when firms with U.S. presence and U.S. government contracts openly publicize their attendance at an exhibition for Iran’s most heavily sanctioned sector,' said Matan Shamir, research director for the advocacy group United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI), which has been closely tracking and publicly admonishing those companies seeking to do business with Iran. Energy and electrical giant Siemens, which maintains a large U.S. presence, and the French energy company Total, which also has a large U.S. presence, were both reportedly in attendance. Siemens has received more than $3 billion in government contracts with the Department of Veteran Affairs, the Pentagon, and DHS, among others. Total has been awarded more than $2 billion in contracts with the Pentagon, DHS, and the Treasury Department. Other government contractors that attended the Iran Oil Show include: the manufacturing firm Leoni, which has had around $82,000 in government contracts; the industrial firm Nexans, which has had more than $157,000 in contracts; and pump manufacturer Nikkiso, which has had more than $118,000 in contracts.” (Washington Free Beacon, “U.S. Government Contractors Attend Iran Oil Show,” 5/14/14)
