OVERVIEW

The objective of this project is to design a roadmap for development of the Sheberghan gas fields. This includes several activities: drilling/rehabilitating three gas wells; conducting a gas reservoir study to certify reservoir gas quantity, pressures and quality; and assisting the Afghan government to partner with the private sector to design, build and operate a central gas processing (sweetening) plant and construct and operate an expandable gas-fired power generation plant with an initial capacity of 200 MW in the form of an Independent Power Producer (IPP). An Afghan Gas Enterprise (AGE) will play a major role in supplying gas to the IPP in collaboration upstream with private-sector gas exploration and production companies, mid-stream with private-sector processing or companies and downstream by delivering processed gas (fuel) to the IPP.

The piped-water system operated by the Afghanistan Urban Water Supply and Sewerage Company covers the needs of less than 20 percent of the Kabul population. The goal of the KUWS Project is to improve the urban water system, creating a healthier environment for the population.

OVERVIEW

The Gardez-Khost National Highway (NH08) is 101.2-kilometer road linking eastern Afghanistan with the Ghulam Khan Highway in Pakistan. USAID’s Gardez to Khost National Highway (G-K Highway) project includes the creation of an all-weather NH08 by building bridges, causeways, and drainage structures and asphalting pavement to international standards. The G-K road runs through some of Afghanistan’s most difficult, remote and violent terrain. The project’s primary goals are to provide economic and security benefits to the populations of Paktia and Khost provinces.
