Pakistan to Ask Iran for New Timeframe for Completion of IP Gas Pipeline

Federal Minister for Petroleum and Natural Resources, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said Pakistan would ask Iran to set a new timeframe for completion of Iran-Pakistan (IP) gas pipeline project.

Addressing a press conference, the minister reiterated that the government was making all-out efforts to resolve the gas crisis, adding that gas consumers in Punjab will face a low gas pressure in two upcoming months, Iran’s SHANA news agency reported.

He said Iran and Pakistan would soon hold talks on IP and both countries would decide a new timeframe for the construction of the much-needed energy resource to Pakistan.

“We are making all possible efforts to resolve the gas crisis, but it will not overcome within days as these crisis has been hitting the masses over the past 7 years,” he said.
