Saudi Arabia To Invest In Turkmenistan’s TAPI Gas Pipeline
Saudi Arabia is expected to help fund Turkmenistan’s construction of a major international gas pipeline that will connect its supplies as far away as India, through the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India transnational gas pipeline (TAPI).
The TAPI pipeline, also known as “the peace pipeline,” runs 1,814 km from Galkynysh, the largest gas field in Turkmenistan, through the Afghan cities of Herat and Kandahar. The line ends at Fazilka, located near the India-Pakistan border. Construction in Turkmenistan began nearly three years ago in the city of Mary, near the Galkynysh gas field. The pipeline is expected to open in 2020, transporting 33 billion cubic meters (bcm) of natural gas per year.
