The Trans-Afghanistan Pipeline (TAP or TAPI)



It is a proposed natural gas pipeline being developed by the Asian Development Bank.The pipeline will transport Caspian Sea natural gas from Turkmenistan through Afghanistan into Pakistan and then to India. Proponents of the project see it as a modern continuation of the Silk Road. Contents of the document signed by Karzai, Berdymukhamedov,
President Asif Ali Zardari and Indian petroleum minister Murli Deora in Ashgabat. Turkmenistan is believed to hold the world’s fourth-largest gas reserves. Pipeline would deliver up to 33 billion cubic metres of gas annually. According to a preliminary breakdown, Pakistan and India would each get about 42 per cent of the gas and Afghanistan the remainder.


The 1,680 kilometre long Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI) gas pipeline, backed by the Asian Development Bank, would bring 3.2 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day (bcfd) from Dauletabad gas field, Turkmenistan via Qandhar to Multan in central Pakistan and end in the northwestern Indian town of Fazilka. Under the IGA, the four nations would commit to provide government support, including security for the pipeline.

The construction of the pipeline is likely to commence soon and would be completed by 2013-14. The project would help overcome Pakistan’s growing energy crisis that has caused electricity shortage and protests across the country. Project worth 7.6 billion dollars.
