TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran’s offshore and onshore oil export pipelines have been put under domestic insurance coverage to avoid any risk, officials said.
Managing director of Iran’s Oil Terminals Company (IOTC) Seyyed Pirouz Mousavi said the insurance deal will provide necessary coverage for security of oil export pipelines spanning from Genaveh to Kharg Island for a two- year period and includes 13 groups of pipelines.
He said IOTC has decided to conclude the deal with domestic insurance companies in order to support them adding the insurance covers all kinds of risks including against fire, earthquake, tsunami, storm, high waves, flooding, collisions of ships and vessels with pipelines, anchoring facilities and floating vessels so that they cause damage to the pipelines.
He said the insurance covers 50 kilometers of pipelines stretching from Genveh to Kharg Island, storage yards and oil export piers for 34 billion rials.
“In case of not occurring any damage to pipelines over a one year period, 18 percent of the insurance fee will be returned to IOTC as reward,” Mosavi said.
