Doroud (formerly Darius) is a mature field, located in the north of the Persian Gulf, on and offshore Kharg Island. Apart from the years 1983 to 1988 during the Iran-Iraq War, the field has been continuously in production since 1964, operated by the Iranian Offshore Oil Company (IOOC). In 1999, a buyback contract for the further development of the field was awarded to Total and Eni. Total handed over operatorship of the new facilities to IOOC in December 2008, around four years later than planned. Total and Eni recovered all costs and remuneration fee payments under the buy-back contract by the end of 2015. Doroud is on NIOC's list of 50 oil and gas development projects to be offered to local and foreign investors under the Iran Petroleum Contract (IPC).
