A tender for the construction of part of a pipeline for the Jask Oil Terminal is due to be held shortly.
An Iranian news agency reports that the MD of the National Iranian Oil Company says that tender is for part of a pipeline to transfer crude oil to the facility located in the southern Hormozgan Province.
Ali Kardor was quoted as saying: 'A project to lay a section of the pipeline has already been tendered and the remaining part will be put out to tender in the next few days.'
The project comprises laying 1,000 kilometres of oil pipeline from Genaveh in Bushehr Province to the port of Jask to transform Jask into a major oil terminal, which is aimed at easing and speeding up Iran's oil loading and shipment operations.
The terminal is part of a wider development plan to build two refineries, a petrochemical complex and oil storage units.
