Bangladesh may be the fifth nation after India to join the multi-billion dollar Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI) gas pipeline project.

“There was a request from Bangladesh to join the project,” Turkmenistan’s acting minister of oil and gas and mineral resources Kakageldy Abdullaev said at the Petrotech 2012 Conference on Monday.“We require an official note for this which will be considered by all the four governments of TAPI project.”

The TAPI project countries have invited firms to become consortium leaders for executing the 1,680-km project. The pipeline’s length will be increased if Bangladesh joins in.
