Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov said that Ashkhabad was planning to sign all documents to start construction of the Turkmenistan--Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI) pipeline in 2015, ITAR-TASS reports.
Construction of the Turkmenistan-China branch of the pipeline through Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan should be accomplished by 2018. Contracts for gas exports to Russia and Iran will be fulfilled. Turkmenistan signed contracts with all participants of the contract in 2012-2013 and a deal with the Asian Development Bank.
TAPI was revived in 2010 when its participants signed deals. The pipeline will have a capacity of 33 billion cubic meters a year. 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.
