Green terminal of the country
Due to the strategic situation of Islamic Republic of Iran
in the margin of Mazandaran (Caspian) Sea, and playing a core role in the
transport and transit of crude oil of Central Asian Countries to other
countries of the country, basic and infrastructural activities have been
carried out in Behshahr Port (Neka). The terminals developed in this port are
in 22 kilometer distance of Neka Town in the sea bank (the distance of Neka to
Tehran is 230 kilometers).
The major goal in establishing Behshahr Operational Zone
(Neka) is to receive, store, proces and transport crude oils of Caspian Sea
marginal states under SWAP (exchange) plan.
Behshahr operational zone plan (Neka) is completed in three
stages. In first stage, the capability of receiving and transporting 50
thousand barrels, 120 thousand barrels in the second stage and 370 thousand
barrels of crude oil for North Oil Terminal have been predicted. This figure is
increasing up to 500 thousand barrels.
North Oil Terminal presently receives oil products from
neighboring countries in north Iran.
