TAPI Pipeline Project Scouting for Investors at Kabul Exhibition

Published

on

TAPI Pipeline Project, short form for Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India exhibition committee launched a three-day exhibition in the Afghan capital, Kabul to inspire the private sector to engage in the TAPI pipeline project. 

TAPI exhibition committee is in-charge of conducting TAPI related exhibitions in the member countries. This exhibition was the first so far and 20 organisations attended.

Head of the committee Ahmad Sameer Mateen said at the opening ceremony the exhibition intends to introduce private corporations to TAPI officials and make a platform for the private sector to invest in the project.

TAPI project director in Afghanistan Abdul Rahman Mujahid said 95% of the preparatory work in Afghanistan for TAPI has been performed.

“Our companies have good engineers and technical staff. They have good facilities and ability and they should be given the chance to take part in this national project and implement it in a good manner,” Musharaf Musharaf, head of a private construction company said. 

Afghanistan Chamber of Commerce and Industries (ACCI) meanwhile raised concerns over the delay in the implementation of the TAPI project and urged the government to encourage Afghan companies to take on parts of the TAPI project.

TAPI exhibition will be open for three days in Kabul. The exhibition committee will hold exhibitions in India, Pakistan and Turkmenistan in the near future and a number of Afghan companies will attend.

TAPI Pipeline Project

TAPI project was inaugurated by leaders of the four countries – Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India – in January 2016. The 1,814-kilometer gas pipeline from Turkmenistan will pass through Afghanistan to Pakistan and India. At least 816 kilometers of the pipeline will cross Afghanistan.

The pipeline will run through Afghanistan from it will go to Quetta and Multan in Pakistan and the final destination of the pipeline will be the Indian town of Fazilka, near its border with Pakistan. The project is implemented by the TAPI Limited Company – a group of firms from Afghanistan and Turkmenistan including Afghan Gas Enterprise, Turkmen Gas State Company, and two private companies from Afghanistan.
