TAPI update: timeline for completion is five years

The construction of the US$10 billion Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI) gas pipeline project will be completed in the next five years, Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani has announced.

The ambitious TAPI gas pipeline was expected to be operational in 2018.

"We have a framework for transmitting with the pipelines from Turkmenistan to Afghanistan to Pakistan to India. But I invite you to another alternative.

“TAPI will take five years. I invite the Indian industry to join us in production of fertilisers and chemical industry based on supply of gas from Turkmenistan and Afghanistan's natural gas," Ghani said at a business event.

The TAPI project has been delayed because the four nations have not been able to find an international firm to head a consortium, which will lay and operate the pipeline.
