Pak-Iran Gas Pipeline Project inauguration

President Asif Ali Zardari visited Tehran on 11 March 2013 on a day-long visit to Iran to formally inaugurate Pak-Iran Gas Pipeline Project along with his Iranian counterpart Mehmood Ahmedinijad.

The ceremony would mark the start of work on the 781-kilometre pipeline earmarked for the Pakistani side of the border. It will cost $1.5 billion. The pipeline on the Iranian side is almost complete.

An Iranian-Pakistani consortium will complete work on the project at a cost of $7.5 billion.

Pakistan will start receiving gas after completion of the project in December 2014. Iran will supply seven hundred fifty million cubic feet gas to Pakistan.

Both the Presidents will also sign an accord for 400‚000-barrel capacity oil refinery in Gwadar.

It is his second visit to Teheran during the last two weeks. It is expected that some other heads of state and government of the region will also attend the ceremony.

The President‚ despite the International pressure‚ has categorically stated that the gas pipeline project is very important to meet Pakistan's energy requirements.

In an interview to Ptv‚ Minister for Information Qamar Zaman Kaira termed the gas pipeline project as an important milestone for development of the country.

He said it will go a long way in meeting energy requirements of the country.
