The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) took action against Iran’s largest and most profitable petrochemical holding group, Persian Gulf Petrochemical Industries Company (PGPIC), for providing financial support to Khatam al-Anbiya Construction Headquarters (Khatam al-Anbiya), the engineering conglomerate of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC);

PGPIC and its group of subsidiary petrochemical companies hold 40 percent of Iran’s total petrochemical production capacity and are responsible for 50 percent of Iran’s total petrochemical exports;

In 2018, Iran’s Ministry of Petroleum awarded the IRGC’s Khatam al-Anbiya ten projects in oil and petrochemical industries worth the equivalent of 22 billion dollars, a value four times the official budget of the IRGC. In late 2016, Iran’s Minister of Petroleum asked the IRGC’s Khatam al-Anbiya to increase its investment and presence across Iran’s oil and petrochemical industries;

This extensive network of petrochemical companies represents Iran’s most profitable petrochemical holding. Its parent corporation, PGPIC, has awarded major engineering, procurement, and construction contracts to the IRGC’s Khatam al-Anbiya, generating hundreds of millions of dollars for an IRGC economic conglomerate that stretches across Iran’s major industries;

OFAC is designating PGPIC for having provided, or attempted to provide, financial, material, technological, or other support for, or goods or services to or in support of, Khatam al-Anbiya, a person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to Executive Order (E.O.) 13382, which authorizes sanctions on WMD proliferators and their supporters;

The IRGC and its major holdings, such as the Basij Cooperative Foundation and Khatam al-Anbiya, have a dominant presence in Iran’s commercial and financial sectors, controlling multi-billion dollar businesses and maintaining extensive economic interests in the defense, construction, aviation, oil, banking, metal, automobile and mining industries, controlling multi-billion dollar businesses. The profits from these activities support the IRGC’s full range of nefarious activities, including the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and their means of delivery, support for terrorism, and a variety of human rights abuses, at home and abroad;
