Oman plans pipeline to Iran as US sanctions loom

The Iran-Oman gas pipeline, a major energy and engineering project, was agreed to last year after more than a decade of talks. A joint committee was formed to finalize the deal in July.

With an estimated cost of $1.2 billion, the pipeline would send 28 million cubic meters per day of Iranian natural gas to Oman via Iran’s southern port of Kuhmobarak, according to a January statement from the National Iranian Gas Company.

Kuhmobarak lies on the Sea of Oman, outside the strategically vital Strait of Hormuz, through which about 30% of the entire world’s daily seaborne oil and gas supply passes. From there, the pipeline would pass through waters sometimes 1,000 meters deep to Oman’s northern port of Sohar.
