Offshore staff

TEHRAN, Iran – National Iranian Gas Exports Co. (NIGE) should soon issue feasibility study contracts to domestic consultants on a proposed 400-km (248-mi) gas export pipeline to Oman.

The land section will extend over 200 km (124 mi) from Rudan to Mobark Mount in southern Hormuzgan Province, while the 200-km seabed section will continue to Sohar Port in Oman.

NIGEC managing director Alireza Kameli told news service Shana that technical studies for both sections will likely be executed simultaneously to prevent any delay in the project.

In 2013, Iran and Oman agreed to construct the pipeline, with a view to transporting 28 MMcm (1 bcf) of gas over 15 years.
