hydrocarbon nexus?

< Previous | Next >


Iran is at the very center of 21st-century geopolitics. It dominates Central Asian trade routes and sits at the hydrocarbon nexus of the India Ocean, with a coastline of over 1500 miles stretching from Iraq to Pakistan.
So could anybody help me understand the hydrocarbon nexus in the above sentence? I am totally lost.
Thank you very much!

    3. the core or center, as of a matter or situation.

    Does that help?
