    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his Pakistani counterpart Asif Ali Zardari have officially inaugurated the final construction phase of the multi-billion-dollar Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline project.


    Ahmadinejad and Zardari attended the ceremony on the Iran-Pakistan border on Monday.

    Iranian Oil Minister Rostam Qasemi and Iran's Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi also attended the ceremony, which marks the start of the construction of the pipeline, intended to transfer natural gas from Iran to energy-hungry Pakistan.

    The United Arab Emirates Energy Minister Mohammad Bin Dha'en Al Hameli also attended the ceremony.

    During a short meeting prior to the inaugural ceremony of the pipeline, Ahmadinejad and Zardari said the project would promote peace, security and progress in the Iranian, Pakistani as well as other regional nations.

    The project will help enhance economic, political and security ties between Tehran and Islamabad, the two leaders stressed.

    They also underlined the need for tapping into all of the existing capacities between Iran and Pakistan to promote the progress and welfare of the two countries.

    On March 2, Zardari reiterated that Islamabad would not stop the pipeline project at any cost.

    The Pakistani president stressed that his government would continue to pursue the construction of the gas pipeline despite threats and pressure from the US.

    Washington has repeatedly voiced its discontent with the joint project, but Pakistan has dismissed rumors that it might pull out of the project amid pressures by the United States.

    Pakistan faces a crushing energy crisis, which has caused difficulties in financing the pipeline that stretches from the border between the two countries to Nawabshah region in Pakistan.

    The 1,600-kilometer pipeline, projected to cost USD 1.2-1.5 billion, would enable the export of 21.5 million cubic meters of Iranian natural gas to Pakistan on a daily basis.

    Iran has already constructed more than 900 kilometers of the pipeline on its soil.

    Tehran-based Tadbir Energy Development Group will reportedly undertake all engineering procurement and construction work for the first segment of the project, which starts from the Iran-Pakistan border and costs around USD 250 million.

    The Iranian firm will also carry out the second segment of the project, and extend the financing later to USD 500 million.

    The remaining amount is expected to be generated through Pakistan’s Gas Infrastructure Development Cess (GIDC).

    High pressure: President inaugurates historic Pak-Iran gas pipeline

    [​IMG]

    CHAHBAHAR: President Asif Ali Zardari along with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad inaugurated the multi-billion dollar Pak-Iran gas pipeline in Chahbahar on Monday, reported Express News.

    The contentious gas pipeline was inaugurated by Zardari as he pulled the rope to reveal the foundation-laying plaque on the Pak-Iran border for the 1,600 kilometre long pipeline.


    A 300-member strong Pakistani delegation led by President Zardari and comprising the country’s foreign minister, petroleum minister and National Assembly speaker and a number of prominent politicians attended the historic ceremony.

    Foreign ministry spokesperson Moazzam Ali Khan said several heads of states had also been invited at the inauguration — an event that will see the two neighbouring states sign a crucial yet controversial mega project aimed at easing Pakistan’s energy crisis. However, he refused to give any further details.

    One official pointed out that the high-powered inauguration clearly indicated that Pakistan would pursue the project at all costs.
    The US has issued warnings to invoke economic sanctions already in place against Iran if Pakistan went ahead with its plans to import natural gas from the Islamic republic.

    Re: Pakiistan,Iran inaugurate pipeline.

    This part of pipeline is just a foreplay towards the extension into China isn't it?

    This inauguration is quite meaningful against the backdrops of another headline "India halts crude oil imp from Iran"

    @Daredevil , these facts have been known for a long time but our friends have been living in a state of denial for the last 60 years so another case is no big deal for them.

    Now their own media is reporting on this case, it is time to wake up and smell the coffee

    GABD, Iran: Pakistan leader breaks ground on Iran pipeline - Business Breaking News - MiamiHerald.com

    Monday's ceremony comes just days before the government's term is set to expire and could be designed to win votes by making the ruling Pakistan People's Party look like it's addressing the energy crisis. It also allows the government to thumb its nose at the United States, which is widely unpopular in Pakistan despite billions of dollars in military and civilian aid.

    iranian govt,iranian banks are financing this..
    construction is started today on pakistani side of the board.on iranian side the construction is already completed.

    the construction cost on pak side cost is only 1.5billions USD.but iran want this to happen at any cost because pakistan demand for energy is growing and growing and expected is that china might also extend it to china..

    may be india join as well..

    This project ultimately will yield billions for iran per year
