Russia gave the first pipe for the "Pakistani Stream"

On Friday, November 26, a delegation of representatives from Russia and Pakistan visited the Chelyabinsk Pipe-Rolling Plant. The visit was timed to coincide with the launch of the first pipe for the Pakistan Stream gas pipeline. The gas route will connect the north and south of Pakistan, and will also receive gas from the yet to be built pipeline from Turkmenistan to India via Afghanistan and Pakistan.

At the head of the Russian and Pakistani delegations, the enterprise was visited by the Minister of Energy of Russia Nikolai Shulginov and the head of the economic department of Pakistan Omar Ayub Khan. Shulginov and Ayub Khan, as well as the chairman of the board of directors of TMK (Pipe Metallurgical Company, owner of the Chelyabinsk plant) Dmitry Pumpyansky and Governor of the Chelyabinsk Region Alexei Teksler signed the pipeline, which will be the first in the construction of the gas pipeline.

The visit to the enterprise took place on the eve of the 7th meeting of the intergovernmental commission of Russia and Pakistan, at which issues of multilateral cooperation between the two countries were discussed. In particular, at the meeting it was decided to increase the capacity of the Pakistani Stream up to 16 billion cubic meters per year. In addition, the parties discussed economic и technical component of the pipeline.

Russian and Pakistani experts also expressed interest in cooperation in the energy sector in general - in particular, in terms of the construction of power generation facilities in Pakistan, the supply of electrical equipment and products of Russian engineering and the development of energy infrastructure in Pakistan with the participation of specialists from Russia.

As noted by the Pakistani Minister of Economy, the gas pipeline under construction will be only the first step in a chain of joint projects between the two countries. Ahead is the implementation of plans in the field of mechanical engineering, agriculture, hydropower and the aviation industry.

    Russia gave the first pipe for the "Pakistani Stream"

    - In general, it is difficult to come up with a more ridiculous idea - than such a "project" ...
    - Well, you have to think of something like that - bring LNG in tankers, then liquefy it; and then pump it through the pipes ... - Well, Russia is there - sort of like a construction contractor - only the pipeline is laying ...
    - Probably it is all the same - it is beneficial to Iran ... - When this whole venture fails miserably ... - Well, who benefits from it - to bring LNG; liquefy it - and then supply this gas through a pipe ... - So - when all this expensive nonsense gets tired - then this pipeline will be altered a little - redirected to Iran - and Iran will simply start pumping its gas to Pakistan through this pipeline ... - Most likely it will...

        - Kotam-bayuns - it is better to "start songs and tell fairy tales" - than to get into the gas business ... - They themselves - then they don't have to snort again ...
        - As for the Russian LNG and the Americans - then ... then ... then - not "from the cat's" garden they had to pull a pipe and not build it across the ocean ... - So they had to pump the Russian LNG brought into the pipes ( and before that, liquefy it) ... - they had no other options - although this is a complete absurdity - they could simply deliver ready-made Russian LNG in containers ... all over America ... - But the Americans couldn't - that's and so to show that they use "ready-made Russian gas" - they need to make a little effort - what they say - it has already become liquefied "American gas" ... - So they use our diesel fuel as an additive, not as a ready-made fuel, which can be poured into tanks and can be ridden ... - Hahah ...
        - As for the Pakistanis, they have a whole Iran (with cheap gas) at their side - they have built a pipe (which is already being built along the whole of Pakistan) and Iran will flood the whole of Pakistan with gas ... - And then - they will bring LNG, then liquefy it, and then serve ... - to fence such an expensive vegetable garden ...

    Gas-fired power plants are to be built in the north near Lahore. The projected capacity is 12,4 billion cubic meters per year. The cost is 2-2,5 billion dollars.
    Regasified LNG supplies through the Pakistani stream + gas intake from the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India gas pipeline that has not yet been built ”(TAPI).
    Russia will receive at least 26% in the construction project of the IHP Pakistani Stream

    The launch of the Pakistani flow will create a funnel that will suck out all the free gas from the Persian Gulf (Iran, Qatar, etc.) for the needs of India. As a result, Russia can count on the fact that the European gas market will remain with it. That is, Russia is not going to supply liquefied gas to Pakistan. This is not why the Pakistani stream is being built (mostly).
