India in discussion to export LNG to Pakistan

By Religare

In a bid to help Pakistan to overcome crippling energy shortage, India is to export natural gas to Pakistan through a pipeline from Punjab, said media report.

State gas utility GAIL has proposed to lay a 110-km pipeline from Jalandhar to Wagah border via Amritsar to supply natural gas to Pakistan, GAIL, Chairman and Managing Director, B C Tripathi told media.

Pakistan that do not have an LNG import facility at present, is willing to buy LNG from GAIL provided India exempts it from taxes to bring down the cost.


The gas that will import at the ports in Gujarat, will be moved through GAIL's existing pipeline network till Jalandhar and further will be carried in the proposed line.

B C Tripathi further added that the pipeline exports to Pakistan are viable and should be looked at in the context of India looking at importing gas through a cross-country, Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India pipeline.
