Turkmengas selects technical consultant for TAPI

“Turkmengas” State Concern has selected an Italian company as its technical consultant for supervision and project support services relating to the Turkmen section of the TAPI gas pipeline. The contract, valued at around 13 million USD, covers technical advice and support services for the construction of a 214km of pipeline across Turkmenistan along with two compressor stations.

The 10 billion USD TAPI (Turkmenistan – Afghanistan – Pakistan – India) pipeline will be 1814km long and run from Turkmenistan, through Afghanistan and Pakistan, to India. The Turkmenistan section of the pipeline project is the first of its kind for the country and has a budget of around one billion USD.

The TAPI project is financed by the Islamic Development Bank (IsDB) and, as with any major investment bank, the technical requirements to enter the tender process are very strict.

The TAPI pipeline will bring significant economic benefit to Turkmenistan. Its construction will be carried out in two phases and is expected to be completed in four years. The first phase will be the pipeline itself and the second will comprise the two compressor stations.
