Starting in 1986, IDRIA ENERGY originally operated as IDRIA OIL & GAS COMPANY, a group founded by Pascal Mahvi’s father, Prince Abolfath Mahvi, the noted “oil man of Iran”.

Returning to Iran in 1955 at the Shah’s request, Price Mahvi joined the Anglo-Persian Oil Company and later, Standard Oil Company’s subsidiary, Iran Pan American Oil Company, all three of which were merged into British Petroleum (BP) at the turn of the century. Prince Mahvi was primarily responsible for bringing the Pan American Oil Company (AMOCO) to the Persian Gulf in 1958, securing it the largest concession ever granted by Iran.

Three decades later, Prince Mahvi formed the Idria Oil & Gas Company and installed his son, Pascal Mahvi as its Managing Director. The company carried out over 3 million km of seismic soundings on the Pacific coast of the Republic of Panama, ultimately drilling three exploratory deep wells of 8,000 feet using shallow water, jack-up platforms.  Much later, in 2013, this effort resulted in negotiating a Joint Venture with an American based company in order to re-enter the area to explore and drill production wells to which IDRIA will shares in its production and sales rights. These efforts are still on going.

In 1990 Idria Oil & Gas Company facilitated / negotiated the drilling of 54 deep wells rework contract with National Iranian Drilling Company (“NIDC”).  These range from 10,000 -12,000 feet at a cost of $254 Million Dollars.  The partner on the project was Canadian Triton International, under contract to NIDC.  The wells were completed on time and on budget, allowing Iran to increase its production by bringing the collapsed wells back on line.

Two decades later, Pascal Mahvi created the successors to Idria Oil & Gas, now called IDRIA ENERGY in Delaware.  

XUN OIL MARKETING and IDRIA ENERGY also formed IDRIA XUN ENTERPRISES LIMITED in Hong Kong in order to manage Joint Venture projects with a third parties.

As a group, the companies are highly specialized and work under the radar of their larger competitors by using their unique approach to sales and marketing, along with their expertise in corporate law and banking. The companies are staffed by specialists who understand the world markets in petroleum fuels, and have extensive experience traveling and negotiating deals in all parts of Russia, Siberia, Africa, Middle East and the Far East.

The group is in a unique possession of having the infrastructure in place, allowing it to stretch its reach from one side of the globe to the other, picking the best of the best as clients. Every sale made is self-generated without any sales or marketing, and is solely off its current and past relationships.

Over the last several years, the Xun Oil Marketing’s president, was instrumental as an intermediary in facilitating petroleum products and precious metals transactions between substantial buyers and sellers on a pro bono basis. In the fall of 2013, after being approached by active & committed buyers, its parent company, Xun Energy, Inc considered it a good time to bring forward a procurement service of high quality petroleum products for active buyers.


Mr. Mahvi was born into the Kajar royal family of Persia.  Born in Flushing, New York, he is a multinational, multi-lingual (Farsi, English, French, and elementary German) Internationalist. He is a pilot, sailor and published author. His book deals with the Shah's Iran’ and the secret aspirations to be a nuclear power.

Mr. Mahvi has a diverse range of expertise from 43 years spent in business, including exploratory drilling in Central America, well reworks in Iran, MILSPEC manufacturing in Missouri, and property development in Iran, France, Caribbean and The United States. He began a career in real estate development, overseeing the construction projects in Iran, California, Missouri and the five-star resort known as Jalousie Plantation in St Lucia, located on the world's newest UNESCO's World Heritage Site.  Today the resort is called Viceroy at Sugar Beach.

In the 1980s he founded Hardill International, a MILSPEC manufacturing company, which he sold to Litton Industries. The company manufactured F-16 landing gear parts, the VHB-80 and 45 vibration less Jackhammer, and the SunTwin® space heaters, which are still, now 36 years later, on the market.

In the late 1980s as the Managing Director of Idria Oil & Gas Company, he carried out over 3 million km of seismic soundings, drilling three exploratory wells off the southern coast of the Republic of Panama. In 2013 he negotiated a joint venture with an American driller to re-enter the area to further explore the area and bring their findings to production.

In the 1990’s he facilitated / negotiated the drilling of 54 deep wells (12,000 ft / $254 million project) with Canadian Triton International for the National Iranian Drilling Company. The joint venture completed this project on time and on budget, allowing the Islamic Republic of Iran to increase its production prior to the United States 1995 Executive Order.

In 2002 he and his partner formed Petrosonics. Its UAOD process is a clean Fuel Technology, developed to meet the demands for low emission fuels, and in particular Diesel Fuel. As the World is moving to zero sulfur fuels, diesel demands are increasing. The technology  uses modest power ultrasound at a moderate temperature, atmospheric pressure environment to reduce sulfur, nitrogen, and trace metals presnet in petroleum and crudes, while reducing oil density and hydrogen loss. The process increases API (American Petroleum Institute) gravity and volume. Sour oil is rendered less sour, more useable refined product is extracted from a barrel of oil, and the volume of treated oil expands. The process adds substantial profits to a refinery.  In 2015 he became the Co-CEO of Petrosonics and plans to build a Pilot Plant in the Middle East. In 2016, Mahvi became the companies Director for International Sales.

In 2013, Mr. Mahvi became the Manging Director of Idria Energy and Idria Consulting Services Limited. The Companies’ current emphasis is on the trading of oil-based products from Russia, Middle East, Africa, and the Far East.
