According to the ministry officials, Afghanistan has made all the necessary arrangements in terms of security and other facilities for the implementation of the project and the areas the pipeline is expected to run through has also been finalized.

The 1,735km long pipeline has the capacity to transfer 33bn cubic meters of gas from Turkmenistan to Pakistan and India through Heart, Farah, Helmand and Nimroz provinces of Afghanistan.

Afghanistan is expected to receive USD 500mn in transit duties annually from the project.
