United States making efforts to fail Pak-Iran gas pipeline deal – Pakistan oil and gas news update

If a
Pakistani worker Imrah Haider were trapped inside the elevator on the market in Lahore, during one of the frequent interruptions in power supply of the city, in vain attempts were made to save him.
But it was just not enough time, it withered and died.

In a country
where temperatures can reach 30-50 degrees, is often a shortage of energy, which can last up to 12 hours were the cause of numerous protests and anger against the government is seen as too incompetent to handle the situation.
With emergency patients in hospitals to schools and businesses – their social and economic impact has been crippled.

This aspect of the problem of Pakistan, "power politics" has put the government in
a difficult position – not only internally but also with regard to external relations of the country.

Last month, Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said that Pakistan will buy 1100 megawatts of
electricity from Iran, as well as oil and gas.
These two countries have worked for many years towards the establishment of the Iran-Pakistan
gas pipeline.

But the United States government has expressed its displeasure, warning that the project may be in violation
of the law sanctions against Iran.
Earlier, India is also part of the pipeline project,
but pulled out in 2009 after the U.S. made the nuclear deal with the country.

The pressure on Pakistan, however, continues.

we stepped up pressure on Iran seems to be somewhat inexplicably, that Pakistan will try to negotiate the pipeline, said U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. And there is an alternative that we strongly support – the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India
[TAPI] pipeline.

The problem with the latest unstable situation in Afghanistan and in
fact it would take much longer to build, since the power crisis Pakistan is urgent.
Despite this, the Pakistani government aims to go ahead with the TAPI project, in addition to its obligations to Iran.
