Forty-six oil exploration fields have been identified in the Caspian Sea, says Iranian Oil Minister Gholam-Hossein Nozari.

According to Nozari, eight of the fields are presently ready for exploitation.

The comment came as Iran launched its domestically-built 14,000-ton offshore platform in its territorial Caspian waters to increase its oil output.
