S&P Global reported June 25, 2020 as when Iran "officially started" construction of the pipeline. But at the same event, Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh claimed that 40% of the work at the site had been completed.[6][7]

NIOC stated in April 2020 that the pace of the project had not been slowed by the COVID-19 pandemic[2] and The Financial Tribune reported in February of 2020 that the project had reached 25% completion since construction began in 2019.[4]

Oilprice.com reported that Iran built the Goureh-Jask Crude Oil Pipeline to bypass the Strait Of Hormuz.[8] Iranian President Hassan Rouhani stated said in June 2020 that his country would be the only one whose oil exports would be completely cut if the Strait of Hormuz were closed but that the Goureh-Jask Pipeline solves this problem.[6]

Soroush Energy Company is consulting on the project.[1] The main employer is Petroleum Engineering and Development Company.
