The security forces "vigilantly discovered and thwarted a bombing plot against Abadan-Mahshahr oil pipeline on Saturday evening," Gov. Bahram Ilkhaszadeh told the semiofficial Fars News Agency.
Fars provided no further details about the incident in its report Sunday.
A refinery associated with the pipeline was the target of an insurgent attack in 2005, Fars said.
Abadan province is near the Persian Gulf.
