Abadan–Rey is the longest petroleum products pipeline in the region, which is expected to start operations in 2020 with a length of 920.0 km. Africa ranks third in contribution to the new-build petroleum products pipeline length additions globally. Africa is expected to witness the start of operations of six new-build pipelines by 2023, of which four are from planned with a length of 1,813.6 km, and two are from early-stage announced projects with a length of 1,271km.
