    'China to import Iran gas via Pakistan'

    A view of South Pars gas field in southern Iranian Bushehr province
    Managing Director of the National Iranian Gas Export Company (NIGEC) says Pakistan wants to transfer Iran's gas and China is eager to import it.

    “Iran's advantage over its rival countries (Qatar and Russia) is being situated between two big gas consumption markets, China and Europe,” SHANA quoted Hossein Bidarmaghz as saying.

    He went on to highlight China's growing need for gas and LNG, saying that its consumption would equal all of Europe by 2030.

    Bidarmaghz said if the Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline is extended to China it will facilitate gas exports to the country adding that Iranian and Chinese officials would review the matter in the future.

    The multi-billion-dollar Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline deal, which was signed in June 2010, aims to export an annual amount of up to 21 million cubic meters of natural gas to Pakistan.

    The project was originally known as Iran-Pakistan-India (IPI) pipeline project. Iran, India and Pakistan held tripartite negotiations over the project, which was also known as 'The Peace Pipeline,' until New Delhi's vacillation caused Tehran and Islamabad to continue talks bilaterally.

    New Delhi finally left the trilateral talks over differences with Islamabad on issues such as the fee Pakistan would charge India for gas transit.

    In October 2007, Iran and Pakistan began a new round of talks in Tehran, where the details of the deal were finalized.

    Chinese officials announced in March 2008 that they were ready to join the 7.4-billion-dollar Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline project.

    Iran has already constructed more than 900 kilometers of the pipeline on its soil.

    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"

    That makes good sense for both China and Iran.
    Pakistan is a pretty shady conduit though.

    Where troubles melt like lemon drops
    I dint think the pipeline has been built so the "importing" is some way off yet. There are lots of "pipelines" to all sorts of places being discussed but few actually being built.

    Maybe some of the oil people on the forum would know more.
