The director of Jask oil terminal Reza Dehkordi said on Wednesday that the terminal will reduce the costs of any shipment of Iranian oil by around $300,000.  

Jask Port is some 510 nautical miles nearer for the oil tankers which come to load the Iranian oil in comparison to Kharg Port in the Persian Gulf, Dehkordi said according to IRNA, adding that it would take five days for the tankers to go the distance and then come back.  

Using Jask Port will save $300,000 per shipment for buyers of Iranian oil which is a competitive advantage for this port in the Oman Sea, he said.

The newly inaugurated terminal will provide quicker and less expensive access to the Iranian oil for the buyers, the official added.

“In order to be able to export oil we are seeking to attract customers…and take big steps to reduce their costs,” Dehkordi said.   

Even the countries that were not among the customers of Iranian oil will be attracted to Iran’s energy market to reduce the costs of transportation and insurance and to save time, the official added.

Vahid Maleki, the operator of Jask terminal had earlier said that exports of heavy and light crude oil as well as gas condensates are on the agenda of the Jask terminal.

Maleki added that the terminal has an export capacity of 350,000 b/d for the first phase.

A total of 47.6 kilometers of pipes have been laid both of the seabed and onshore, the official said, adding that more than 90% of the project has been done by domestic experts.

He noted that the 1,000-kilometer-long Goureh-Jask pipeline has been laid by Iranian experts.

The purpose of constructing this pipeline is to transfer 1 million b/d of oil produced in the Iranian southwestern province of Khuzestan to Makran shores, to store oil along the shores of the Oman Sea, to export Iranian oil from the new terminal, to guarantee the continuation of crude oil, and to promote Iran's position in international markets, the official said. 

He said that laying this pipeline has created some 5,000 direct jobs, as well as 10,000 indirect jobs.
