Iranian Oil Exported from Jask means "Breakdown of Sanctions"
Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh stated that with crude oil being exported from Jask port in the Gulf of Oman, Iran will have a chance to diversify its export stations, granting it more stability.
Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh said that the project to transport crude oil from Ghoreh to Jask indicates a "breakdown of the sanctions" and reliance on local capabilities, highlighting that this is the Rouhani administration's largest strategic plan.
He added that 250 local contractors took part in the project, which more than 10 thousand people worked on, noting that the project involved building a 1000km pipeline that would transfer oil from Khuzestan, especially the West Karoun oilfields, to export outside the Persian Gulf.
This project will allow Iran to diversify its export stations, giving it more security and stability, according to Zanganeh, who also said that this station would shorten Iran's supply distance by 1000 nautical miles for its customers.
The new pipeline runs from Gureh (south of Iran) to Jask port (southeast of Iran), allowing Iran to export its fuel without passing through the Hormuz straight.
