No international pipeline firm ready to implement TAPI gas project

Billed as ‘Peace Pipeline’ for the troubled South-Asia region, the US-backed $9-billion TAPI gas pipeline has got stuck with no international pipeline company willing to implement it unless Turkmenistan gives a share in the gas fields, officials said today.

According to the Economic Times, the four-nations to the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI) gas pipeline recently held roadshows in New York, London and Singapore to attract firms that can lay and operate the 1,680-km cross-country project but no international pipeline operating company turned up.
