Iran welcomes expansion of Iran-Pakistan-India pipeline to China

Apr 14, 2005 02:00 AM

A senior Iranian official has welcomed an Indian proposal for extending Iran-Pakistan-India gas pipeline to China.
"We welcome such a proposal if it proves to be economical," Roknoddin Javadi, managing director of National Iranian Gas Exports Company, told.

India is seeking greater collaboration between Indian and Chinese oil majors to build energy security for two of the world's most populous and energy-thirsty nations.
"There has been no separate detailed consideration of energy cooperation between India and China (but) in my interactions with Chinese officials (on sidelines of summit meeting between Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao) I raised the issue of extending Iran-India gas pipeline to south China via Myanmar," Petroleum Minister Mani Shankar Aiyar told.

Javadi said: "We have launched studies for exporting gas to China through India and we will make our final decision based on these studies." He added that Iran and China were developing growing energy markets.
India is pursuing gas imports from Iran through an onland pipeline passing through Pakistan. The 2,600 km pipeline which would land in Rajasthan, is proposed to travel through the heart of India and into Myanmar via Bangladesh and than travel to China.
