President Hassan Rouhani has announced plans for transforming Jask Port into Iran’s second oil export terminal.

He said that the plan to establish an oil terminal in Jask will be a “strategic measure that would diversify oil exports spots.”

He said Iran would no longer depend on a single oil exports terminal in the Persian Gulf.

“That is very difficult and tough job which would need three to four years of endeavors, but that would be very important and strategic,” said Rouhani.

Iran plans to construct a pipeline projected to transfer crude oil from the oil terminal in its northern port city of Neka, situated some 200 kilometers (124 miles) north of Tehran, to Jask.

Feasibility studies have been also carried out with respect to the construction of a pipeline to carry Iranian natural gas from the city of Sarakhs in northeastern Iran to Jask.

Apart from the projected oil storage depots, a network will be launched in Jask to turn the coastal city into an oil export terminal.

Currently, Kharg Island is regarded as Iran’s main oil export terminal in the Persian Gulf.

Part of the natural gas transferred to Jask will be exported to the Persian Gulf kingdom of Oman, while the rest will feed petrochemical and steel industries in the coastal region.

On March 12, Iran and Oman signed a contract under which the Islamic Republic will supply the Persian Gulf state with 10 billion cubic meters of natural gas per year.
