Iran and Pakistan discuss gas pipeline

May 12, 1999 02:00 AM

Iranian and Pakistani officials were in discussion on a $ 2.5 bn pipeline project recently. The pipeline, 1,638 km in length and 56 inches in diameter, will have the capacity of transporting 1.6 bn cfpd of gas from Iran to Pakistan. The project is believed to meet a quarter of Pakistan's requirement for gas. Although Pakistan is committed to import gas from Turkmenistan via a proposed Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan pipeline, the country is keeping other options open including that of Iran on a basis of lowest landed price and earliest delivery time.
