At the highest level, the draft plan of the gas pipeline, which will cover Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India, has been considered. The implementation of this ambitious plan will take a long time, somewhere around four years. Its construction will make it possible to transport more than 35 million cubic meters of gas per day to Pakistan via this line.
In his speech at the Quartet Leaders' Forum, the Pakistani oil minister said that the implementation of this project would be of great importance to his country.
Currently, there is no problem with obtaining gas from Turkmenistan; the country's energy potential is great. The same cannot be said for Pakistan's energy sector. Every year there is a huge gap between the demand for energy and the supply from other countries. Pakistan itself is running out of natural gas reserves.
The Forum discussed the issue of the speedy implementation of a plan to bring imported oil to this country, as well as the astronomically high prices of energy carriers that have recently developed in the country.
