Iran, Oman in subsea pipeline studies

Iran and Oman have intensified works on identifying the best route for a subsea pipeline that would carry Iranian gas to Oman.

According to Alireza Kameli, managing director of National Iranian Gas Exports Company (NIGEC), studies to select the best route have started, and two routes are being considered. These include deepwater and shallow water paths.

He reportedly said that the deepwater option would mean a shorter pipeline and no need for permission from a third country. However, the decision will be made after the studies have been completed.

The Iranian Offshore Engineering and Construction Company (IOEC) is conducting the offshore studies and Pars Consulting Engineers Company the onshore ones.

The land part of the gas pipeline extends for 200 kilometers from Rudan to Mobarak Mount in Iran’s southern Hormozgan province. The seabed section between Iran and Sohar Port in Oman will stretch for another 200 kilometers.
