Construction of the Turkmenistan-China branch of the pipeline through Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan should be accomplished by 2018.

It will be 1735km long, running from the Galkinish Field though Afghanistan’s Herat and Kandahar to Fazilka on the Indian-Pakistani border. The project is worth $7.6 billion.
