Construction of the Goreh-Jask pipeline and the crude oil export terminal at Jask Port are among the priority plans of the National Iranian Oil Company, which are being implemented by tapping the maximum capacity of domestic contractors and manufacturers.

By implementation of the project, one million barrels of crude oil per day from the Goreh oil terminal in the southern province of Bushehr is supplied to the Jask region off the coast of Oman Sea, and Jask will become strategically important as the country's second-largest crude oil export terminal.
