    The National Iranian Gas Company has announced it will begin construction of the Iran-Pakistan (IP) pipeline within 30 days. Construction will start on the Pakistani side with the first 700 kilometers that will run to the Iranian border. Iran will then build 300 kilometers of the IP pipeline on its territory, to connect up with the Pakistani border. Starting in 2014, the pipeline will transport 2.15 million cubic meters of gas per day to Pakistan. Iranian banks are assisting Pakistan with its portion of the pipeline financing with some $750 million in loans and equipment.

    Bottom Line: Pakistan needs this pipeline desperately, and Iran is intent on seeing it go through—to the extent of ensuring the financing of the bulk of the project. The West is equally determined to sabotage it. The fact that the pipeline runs through some extremely insecure territory in Balochistan will make its success questionable and this is likely to become the new frontline in the pipeline wars for 2013.

    3-4 years and yet the work is not started.

    i am sure the work won't start until the next govt is in power

    who is going to supply pipes to Iran. As it is most of the oil fields in Iran the output is falling because of lack of spares for upkeep of the oil wells.

    Same is the situation with their refineries.

    Interesting analysis of Iran's oil and Gas industry

    Iran - Analysis - U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA)

    This project means nothing unless China or India link up to that pipeline. China and India have a huge demand for oil and Pakistan benefits from that since it can charge money for the flow of oil through it's territory. The large amounts of oil India and China need to import means a large amount of money for Pakistan to make. That is the only benefit to Pakistan. Otherwise, there is nothing special about this project if it is only Pakistan-Iran.

    When it comes to pipelines and oil & gas equipment Iran is pretty advance. Their pipeline and valves manufacturing facilities at Ahwaz are pretty top class. Furthermore, Pakistan is also manufacturing pipes by Crescent Steel etc..

    HMC do not manufacture pipes for gas industry

    Actually no Pakistan will be buying 1.7bcfd which is quite a huge amount, so without India and China it will still be a viable project for Iran.However, India or China linking from this line will benefit Pakistan in the prices where transportation charges to these countries will compensate the wellhead prices.

    One thing that is being overlooked by everybody is that at present the Gas produced by Iran is just enough to meet their domestic requirement. To increase the gas production Iran needs massive investment which in the present scenario will not happen.

    How much China is going to invest in Iran is also not clear, because the Chinese have also reduced their oil imports from Iran.

    The pipeline doesn't address the main issue as to why Pakistan has a shortage of gas in the first place. Is it because you are not able to import that gas through the sea despite being a neighbour to Iran and a stone's throw away from the Gulf? No. It's because you cannot pay for it. Just check out the pipeline project itself; the article says that Iran will be giving a loan to Pakistan to build the pipeline. If you're taking a loan just to build the pipeline, how will you pay for gas? What your leaders are seeing, and what you fail to see, is that they hope that starting this pipeline project will mean that China and/or India join it eventually, as the original project has always been IPI, and after India walked out, Pakistan asked China to join. The problem is that this is a gamble and if China and India don't join, you will be indebted again, and will have another loan to pay without any profit.

    Re: Iranian Gas Company begin construction of the Iran-Pakistan in 30

    First of all we are here talking about natural gas not LPG/LNG whom can be transported by other means as well...

    2nd indian or china entry would be good.but the demand is here bigger in pakistan here as well so the project won't be a fail.

    I hope you know common consumer will pay for this.

    why we have shortage?
    because our active reserves are 27tcf while the demand at the moment is 34tcf....

    Govt can very well pay the construction cost(750millions) but the reserves are getting depleted while returning back the loan to IMF

    @Tronic money is not the problem, its the bureaucracy which is unable to make decision. GIDC imposed on gas prices is more than enough to finance the project.

    Oh the ignorant one, most of the Pakistani gas pipelines travel to Punjab and KPK from Baluchistan. We are able to reconstruct those lines in less than 24 hours in case of some terrorist attack.

    Now Indian go kill yourself :)
