Turkmenistan urges Pakistan to start building TAPI

Pakistani Ministry of Oil hosted a meeting of Muhammetmyrat Amanov, Chairman of TAPI Pipeline Company Ltd, with Ghulam Sarwar Khan, Minister of Oil and Natural Resources of Pakistan .

During the meeting, the parties discussed joint work and plans for the TAPI project.

According to the Afghan edition of TOLO news , Amanov asked Minister Sarvar Khan to hold in March 2019 the groundbreaking ceremony for the Pakistani section of the pipeline and start building it within a year.

Sarvar Khan agreed that the project should be completed as soon as possible.

According to the Times of Islamabad website , the Pakistani minister announced that the cost of the total gas pipeline was estimated at $ 8.5 billion, of which 5% comes from Pakistan.

Judging by the photo published by the publication, the head of TAPI presented Sarvar Khan with a book by President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov entitled Turkmenistan the heart of the Great Silk Road.

Recall that in midNovember Amanov said that the cost of the pipeline was reduced from $ 10 to $ 7 billion. A week later, Turkmenistan purchased pipes for $ 40 million for the construction of its TAPI site, although it was previously reported that the construction of the territory of Turkmenistan was completed.
