The pipeline to the terminal starts at Goreh (Bushehr province) and runs to Jask.
“The pipeline will carry oil from Goreh, in Bushehr, to Jask, making it the second most important crude export terminal in the country,” Masoud Karbasian, head of the Iranian National Oil Company, told ISNA on Sunday. .
