In this paper we discuss:

  1. The al-Dorra/Arash gas field dispute, which goes back to the 1960s;
  2. How the demarcation of the maritime boundary between Iran and Kuwait will be necessary for Iran, Kuwait, and KSA to benefit from the field;
  3. Why asserting its rights to this field is important for Iran’s domestic politics; and
  4. How this represents a good test case for the rapprochements between Iran and GCC states.
