Tehran, July 18, (ICANA) – Member of the parliament's Energy Commission Nasser Sudani downplayed the importance of the UAE's newly-built oil pipeline which is aimed at bypassing the strategic Strait of Hormuz, saying that the pipeline can only transfer a little portion of the crude produced in the region.

UAE pipeline unable to bypass Strait of Hormuz

"Compared with the Strait of Hormuz, the volume of oil transfer through the UAE pipeline is very meager and the pipeline's capacity is not even one fifteenth of the capacity of oil shipment through the Strait of Hormuz," said on Wednesday.

The lawmaker further stated that the UAE's move to bypass the strait will increase costs of oil transfer for the country.

In relevant remarks, another member of the parliament's Energy Commission dismissed as "media propaganda" the recent reports alleging that the UAE oil pipeline can make up for a part of supply drop in the market in case the strategic Strait of Hormuz is closed to oil tankers by Iran.

"The Strait of Hormuz has no replacement and the Untied Arab Emirates cannot leave any impact on Iran's standing through such measures," Ali Marvi said on Tuesday.

"The Emiratis should surely make heavy costs for opening this pipeline," he continued.
