In November 2020, Pakistan and Russia signed a revised agreement to build the Pakistan Stream Gas Pipeline, also known as Karachi-Lahore Gas Pipeline, and formerly known as the North-South Gas Pipeline. Resources, a subsidiary of the Russian company Rostec, was originally chosen to build the pipeline in 2015.
As of January 2021, construction of the project was scheduled to start in July 2021, according to a Pakistan government official, and the pipeline is intended to allow Pakistan to operate more liquefied natural gas terminals. Pakistan's gas distribution companies Sui Southern Gas Co. and Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Ltd., which have started acquiring land for the pipeline, are expected to be a part of the project, and a Russian consortium is expected to lead the construction.
In July 2021, the governments of Pakistan and Russia signed a preliminary agreement for the pipeline's construction. The delayed project is now forecast to be completed by 2023.
