MOSCOW, November 18. /TASS/. Chinese companies are ready to become contractors in the gas pipeline project in Pakistan implemented by Russia’s Rostec, the Sino-Russian intergovernmental commission said on Wednesday in its minutes of the meeting.
"The parties support the discussion of opportunities for joint implementation of the gas pipeline construction project in Pakistan by RT-Global Resources [affiliate of Rostec - TASS] with potential Chinese contractors, including Sinopec," the document says.
TASS reported earlier the tender for contract work on construction of the North-South gas pipeline in Pakistan will be announced in 2016, Rostec Chief Executive Officer Sergei Chemezov said.
The 1,100 km long gas pipeline will link liquefied natural gas terminals in the port of Karachi in the south of Pakistan with the city of Lahore in the north of the country.
