Kandahar to host TAPI awareness workshop

May 17, 2017 - 15:15

KANDAHAR CITY (Pajhwok): The Ministry of Mines and Petroleum plans to organise a public awareness workshop on the Turkmenistan-Afghanistaninfo-icon-Pakistaninfo-icon-India (TAPI) gas pipeline project in southern Kandahar province, an official said on Wednesday.

The governor’s spokesman told Pajhwok Afghan News Eng. Abdul Rahman, social affairs for the TAPI project, recently visited the province and spoke of the plan to conduct the awareness programme.

Samim Khpalwak said people would be made aware of the importance of multibillion dollars project, and their viewpoints regarding better implementation of the schemes would be heard.

The massive energy project will pass through Afghanistan’s Herat, Farah, Helmand and Kandahar provinces before reaching neighbouring Pakistan. It will carry natural gas from Central Asia to South Asia.

Estimated to cost $10 billion, the project will be completed by 2019. The pipeline will supply 33 billion cubic of natural gas, having short and long-term advantages for energy-starved Afghanistan.
