The oil pipeline which was designated to cross most of the UAE's barren desert for the purpose of transporting massive amount of crude oil from the oilfield's to the Indian Ocean was completed by Abu Dhabi according to the Emirates Business 24/7.
In December, before the project is fully operative, the oil is commissioned to flow on trial basis, as per the project operators. When the project is fully operational, it will allow Abu Dhabi to avoid the Hormuz Strait from where nearly a fifth of the world's crude oil is exported every day.
