Iran to Build Oil Refinery for Pakistan
A number of high-ranking officials, ambassadors and ministers from countries such as Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Oman, Afghanistan and Turkmenistan also attended the ceremony. Speaking to Press TV, Pakistan’s foreign minister said the pipeline will go ahead because Pakistan’s energy crisis dictates that it must. She said the pipeline and the oil refinery will become a trade corridor and may prompt China and India to revive their projects to get Iranian oil and gas supplies.
Iran has built around 900 kilometer of its 12,000 kilometer pipeline. With the help of Pakistani partners, Iran ahs also invested around two billion dollars to build around 800 kilometers of the pipeline on the Pakistani side of the border. Both projects are expected to complete within a year.
