China offers co-operation in IPG pipeline project

Daily Times– China has offered its co-operation to Pakistan for completion of incomplete Iran-Pakistan Gas (IPG) pipeline project.

According to a report, China petroleum pipe line bureau is working on Gwadar Nawab Shah LNG Terminal. This company has extended offer to cooperate in completion of gas pipeline which is left incomplete from Gwadar to Iranian borders.

Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline project could not be materialised due to global sanctions on Iran. However, the project is facing difficulties towards its completion due to certain US restrictions even after lifting of global sanctions. 80 km portion of the IPG pipeline is still incomplete.
