Three daring to build Afghan pipelines

Dec 18, 1996 01:00 AM

There are three contenders to build multi-billion dollar oil and gas pipelines through war-ravaged Afghanistan to Pakistan. The pipelines would start in neighbouring Turkmenistan. The three contenders are a consortium of Unocal and Saudi Delta Oil, Daewoo, and Bridas of Argentina. The Unocal/Delta consortium has agreed to set up an office in the southern Afghan city of Kandahar, where the Taleban are based, and start a survey. The proposed pipelines will run from the gas/oil and gas fields of Turkmenistan to the Sui gas fields in Pakistan. The proposed route runs close to the Taleban-held city of Herat, which is itself close to a bitterly contested front line between the Taleban and the opposition. The Taleban currently control almost 75 % of the country, including all the territory through which the pipelines are expected to pass. The proposed route for the pipelines runs close to the road between the Pakistani border near Quetta and the Turkmen border in the north of the country.
