|Oman yet to conduct Iran gas pipeline feasibility studies||
The Omani government is yet to appoint a consultant to conduct feasibility studies for building a 260-km-long pipeline, aimed to carry Iranian gas to Oman.
"[Work for] the feasibility study at the moment is being kicked off. We have not finalized the tender regarding the feasibility study. We need to do the feasibility study first," Salim Nasser Said Al Aufi, undersecretary of the Omani Ministry of Oil and Gas, told the Times of Oman.
The agreement for the purchase of around $60 billion worth of natural gas from Iran in the next 25 years, with the project including laying a $1 billion gas pipeline to Oman across the Gulf, was signed during the visit of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to Muscat in March.
