Pakistan Gives Tender for IP Pipeline
Pakistan has issued tender for laying Iran-Pakistan (IP) gas pipeline in its territory to a Germany’s ILF Engineering.
The project for which Pakistan has paid $250 million is expected to be complete by 2014.
Pakistan is likely to complete a detailed route survey for laying the gas pipeline from Iranian border close to the Makran Costal Highway to its off-take point at Nawabshah in the current month, covering a distance of over 781 kilometres.
The pipeline will cover a total distance of around 1,931 km starting from Iran’s South Pars gas field.
The sources said the project was being implemented on a segmented approach whereby each country would be responsible for construction of pipeline in the respective territory.
First gas flow will be available by the end of December 2014.
