LyondellBasell to end business in Iran

August 25/2010

(Reuters) -- Specialty chemicals giant LyondellBasell Industries NV (LALLF.PK) will end its operations in Iran to avoid penalties the U.S. could soon impose on companies for violating trade sanctions, the Wall Street Journal said.


Lyondell's board approved the decision to end its Iranian operations early this month after months of deliberation, David Harpole, a spokesman for LyondellBasell, told the Journal.


The Dutch-based company's move will end licensing of its proprietary technology and services to Iranian petrochemical companies, the paper said.
