He was intimately involved in the development of NIOC's relations with OPEC, international oil companies, and other powers that controlled the oil trade on the global scene. He headed the Iranian team that negotiated the repeal of the Consortium Agreement in 1973. He was director of NIOC's international section and member of board of directors from 1974 to 1979.
