Took this from another board (Birdy mentionened it):

ISLAMABAD, Feb. 22 — Pakistan, Afghanistan and Turkmenistan agreed on Saturday to invite India to join a multi-billion natural gas pipeline project connecting the four states.
The 1,400-km (875 mile) line, with a cost estimate of $2.5 billion, is designed to link the vast gas reserves of Turkmenistan with Pakistan and, eventually, India. It has been a pet project of Turkmen President Saparmurat Niyazov since the mid-1990s.
The Asian Development Bank (ADB) will provide $1.5 million for the feasibility study of the project. The study is due to be completed by September.
Pakistan's Petroleum Minister Nauraiz Shakoor Khan said a formal offer to India to join the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan (TAP) project would be made before officials from the three countries meet in Manila in April.
''Since the viability of the project depends upon the extension of the pipeline to India, it was agreed...(to) formally forward the documents of the TAP to the government of India, inviting them to join the project,'' officials of the three countries said in a statement following a meeting.
An agreement to build the trans-Afghanistan gas pipeline was signed in Ashgabat by Niyazov, Afghan President Hamid Karzai and Pakistani Prime Minister Zafarullah Jamali in December.
The proposed pipeline runs through Afghanistan where decades of instability kept the project on the drawing board.
But Mohammad Mohammadi, Afghan minister for petroleum and mines, assured full security for the proposed pipeline.
''As far as security is concerned, the Afghan government has made a very strong commitment to support the project, and make the project successful,'' he told reporters.

Puzzle. We got an area down there where global actors have been batteling and discussing about a pipeline since almost a decade. The pipeline was disagreed about between the Taliban and the US in the beginning of 2001. When war escalated all of a sudden the longterm conflict of India and Pakistan escalated in addition. Now again we have very suppressing regimes all around this pipeline.
