The strait separates Iran (north) from the Arabian Peninsula (south). It contains the islands of Qeshm (Qishm), Hormuz, and Hengam (Henjam) and is of great strategic and economic importance, especially as oil tankers collecting from various ports on the Persian Gulf must pass through the strait. About one-fifth of the world’s oil supply passes through the strait, including about one-third of all seaborne trade. The strait also became important for the supply of liquefied natural gas (LNG), accounting for one-third of all LNG trade. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
