Iran gas pipeline ‘top priority for Pakistan’

TEHRAN, August 29, 2016

The price of gas to be supplied by the Iran-Pakistan pipeline is very attractive and it should be the top priority, a top official was quoted as saying in an Iran Daily report.

"This project has to be revived at the earliest because it is the most viable and feasible one for Pakistan," said Hafiz Pasha, Pakistan's former finance minister, according to the report, which cited  Express Tribune.

Comparing IP with other energy projects such as Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI) gas pipeline, Central Asia South Asia (CASA)-1,000 power supply and Qatar liquefied natural gas (LNG) import, Pasha called IP the most suitable for Pakistan.

The pipeline aims to cover 1,900km and bring natural gas from Iran to Pakistan. Initially it will bring 750 million cu ft of gas per day, and this will later be increased to one billion cu ft per day, the report said.
