Iran has commissioned a 200 kilometers gas pipeline for its coastal areas alongside the Sea of Oman. The pipeline sources energy from South Pars and will help Iran set up energy-based bilateral trade relations with Oman.
Iran is set to commission a 200 kilometers gas pipeline from Minak to Kuhmobarak. The pipeline will source its energy from South Pars and shall be connected to the 7th leg of Iran’s pipeline grid. Mr. Reza Noshadi, leader of the National Iranian Gas Company’s engineering subsidiary, shared that the 120-kilometer-long Minab to Sirik section is nearly 87 percent complete, and the second section’s construction has already started in February 2023.
The pipeline may also be used to facilitate energy exports to Oman. Mr. Noshadi stated that the pipeline will boost both domestic supply and possible energy-based bilateral trade relations with Oman.
Although South Pars, located on Iran-Qatar maritime border in the Persian Gulf, is the world’s largest gas field, Iran will have to rely on Russian imports to enable energy exports to Oman.
