Construction Iranian-Pakistani Natural Gas Pipeline About To Begin

IPI-Pipeline[source]
Total cost: $7.5 billion. Capacity: 40 billion m3 (1.4×1012 ft3) per year. Supplier: South Pars field. Work on the 780-kilometer pipeline ($1.5 billion) would begin on the Pakistani side of the border, as the 900-kilometer Iranian portion of the pipeline is already nearly finished. Unsurprisingly, the US (and Saudi-Arabia) are not amused and are looking for ways to discretely sabotage the construction. But Pakistan needs the energy and construction will go ahead anyway. Weak point though is that the pipeline runs through politically insecure Balochi territory, where the US and SA support separatism.
