Mega Pro­ject

Southasia - - BRIEFS -

The gov­ern­ment of Pak­istan has signed an agree­ment with Rus­sia for the con­struc­tion of a North-South gas pipeline from Karachi to La­hore. The ac­cord be­tween both coun­tries is a part of a mega pro­ject, which also in­cludes the con­struc­tion of liq­ue­fied nat­u­ral gas (LNG) ter­mi­nals in Pak­istan. The Rus­sian Min­istry of Energy is of­fer­ing com­plete tech­nol­ogy and tech­ni­cal sup­port to build Pak­istan’s oil and gas in­fra­struc­ture. As per the agree­ment, the pro­ject will only use Rus­sian tech­nol­ogy, equip­ment, ma­te­ri­als, and prod­ucts. Many Rus­sian com­pa­nies are go­ing to par­tic­i­pate and un­der­take re­search, de­sign and con­struc­tion ac­tiv­i­ties in the 25-year pro­ject.
