Government has allocated twenty five billion rupees in the current fiscal year for development of gas infrastructure across the country, including Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline project.

This was stated by official sources in the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Resources while talking to APP.

The practical work on Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline project will be started as soon as all international sanctions on Iran are completely lifted.

They said a few international sanctions on Iran including ‘dollar transaction’ are causing delay in execution of the much awaited project.

The officials said Pakistan is ready to complete its part of the gas pipeline within thirty months, once the sanctions on Iran are lifted.
