Turkmenistan begins work on gas pipeline to Pakistan

Sep 05, 2015 12:00 AM

Turkmenistan has begun work on an ambitious 1,800-kilometre-long (1,118 miles) pipeline carrying gas from the former Soviet state to energy-hungry India, Pakistan and Afghanistan, state media reported Friday.

“Specialists of the Institute of Oil and Gas in the ‘Turkmengaz’ state corporation have started engineering and surveying work on the route for the future gas pipeline Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI),” state newspaper Neutral Turkmenistan reported, adding that the construction of the pipeline itself would begin in December.

The four countries have long planned the ambitious project to meet growing energy needs, but administrative issues and unrest in Afghanistan have so far delayed its realisation.
