Background

The Neka Jask Pipeline is a proposed oil pipeline in Iran. If constructed, it will transport crude oil originating from Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan and Russia through the port of Neka on the Caspian Sea to Jask, Iran on the Gulf of Oman. The planned capacity of the 1,515 km (941 mi) pipeline is 1 million barrels per day of crude oil. It is expected to cost US$2 billion.[1]

The pipeline is part of a development plan in the region, which includes the construction of a terminal, two refineries, a petrochemical complex and oil storage units with a total capacity of 10 million barrels in the first phase and 30 million barrels in the second. The terminal could ease the load of tanker traffic at Kharg Oil Terminal off the Persian Gulf coast that is responsible for more than 90% of Iranian oil exports. The terminal and pipeline are expected to be complete by 2021.[2]

There have been no development updates since 2017 and the project is presumed to be shelved.
