The recent negotiated deal with Iran has many people asking one question: how will this affect Iran's ability to export oil and in turn the global price of oil? It may seem like a valid question, but there are several reasons why it shouldn't be the primary concern for energy investors. 

First, the negotiated deal does not include oil and gas. So the current sanctions regarding fossil fuel exports will remain in place for some time. Also, there is that tricky fact that Iran is part of OPEC, which could actually hamper its production. When you consider all these things, its hard to see why Iran should be part of anyone's investment thesis. 

In the video segment below, contributor Tyler Crowe explains why Iranian oil is not a big deal for your energy investments, but also how you can play it if it were to all of a sudden start producing mass quantities of oil.
