Rupee News has been discussing the pipelines of the world for years. Pipeline Page
India has lost a golden opportunity to get Iranian Gas. India intoxicated by meager success is blind to real self-portrait of caste infested penury and balkanization. Pakistan has decided to purchase the Iranian gas exclusively without any Indian participation.

India’s recalcitrance to join and China’s eager interest in the Iran Pakistan pipeline bodes well for the visionaries who wish to convert the Pakistan energy corridor into a reality. The introduction of China into the pipeline project is huge morale boost for Pakistan and places a hamper on the hard bargaining on transportation costs. China has the largest investment banks in the world, and with Chinese trade surpluses, the financing issues would evaporate in a nano-second.
Pakistan should buy all the gas it needs and then purchase double or triple that amount. It can then sell the surplus gas in CNG containers on the open market.
The enigma of Mumbai: Some questions
We have always espoused leaving Indian out of the IPI deal and converting it into the IPC (Iran-Pakistan-China) pipeline.
ISLAMABAD, Dec 24: Pakistan has proposed to Iran to buy the Indian share of gas from a proposed $7.5 billion pipeline because India appears to have lost interest in the project after signing a civilian nuclear deal with the US.
Sources in the ministry of petroleum told Dawn on Wednesday that a team of energy experts led by Adviser to the Prime Minister on Petroleum and Natural Resources Dr Asim Hussain would go to Iran on Monday on a two-day visit to discuss the deal.
The sources said the team was visiting Iran on the directives of President Asif Ali Zardari and it had thoroughly discussed the deal with him and Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani.
They said that the delegation would try to persuade the Iranian authorities to sign the agreement in the next few months even if India stayed out.
“We will try our best to convince the Iranian side of the need for starting work on the project as early as possible,” an official in the ministry told Dawn.
Iran recently said that it planned to link the gas prices with that of crude oil in the Gulf market, with a ratio of 80 to 100 — meaning that if a barrel of crude oil is priced at $100 in the international market, Iran will sell one million cubic feet of gas at $80. Also, the gas prices will not remain fixed but will fluctuate in accordance with the oil price.
Pakistan, however, wants the gas priced at half of the crude price.
“We are pursuing a proposal of 100 to 50,” the ministry official said.
Iran has said that after the completion of the project, it will fix gas price at around $10 to $12 per British thermal unit compared to $4 offered by Pakistan and India.
The sources said Iran still wanted India to be part of the deal to counter growing US influence on its old ally in the energy sector. Pakistan offers to buy India’s share of IPI gas: Team leaves for Tehran on 29th By Sher Baz Khan
The new reality in Islamabad is not going to be as compliant to American wishes on the so called “Global War on Terror.” There is a broad consensus in Pakistan that doing Americas bidding is “never ending game” which impedes Pakistani growth, and the blowback is detrimental to Pakistani interests. Irregardless of which political party comes to power, the change in Pakistan’s internal and foreign policy will be definately discernable. Within the next months and years, Pakistan will be going through an historic shift in alliances. The new alliances being formed are Russia-China-Pakistan. Iran may have realized the implications to its own security in Chahbahar. If not, the carpet bombing may convince it if its blunders
The Indians were asked to pack their bags and leave Afghanistan in 1995. They remember the evacuation well, and are packing their bags, just in case they have to do it again. The sickly scent of defeat wafting over the NATO building in NATO Germany was a cause of celebration in many quarters.
