India, Pakistan negotiating gas trade

Exports of natural gas from India to Pakistan are under negotiation, according to the Indian minister of state in the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas.

The official, Dharmendra Pradhan, told the upper house of the Indian parliament that officials of state-owned GAIL (India) Ltd. and Inter State Gas Systems of Pakistan have begun discussing the supply of 5 MMscfd of natural gas for 5 years.

GAIL, which imports LNG at four terminals on India’s west coast and operates the country’s gas-transmission system, would lay a 110-km pipeline between Jalandhar and Amristar to transport the gas.

India and Pakistan have been discussing a normalization of trade relations.
