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 United States' support for Afghanistan’s energy sector is evidence of America’s extraordinary commitment to Afghanistan. We have partnered with the Afghan Government to invest in generation, transmission, and distribution systems throughout the country.  We have helped the government negotiate power purchase agreements with its neighbors.  We are working to bring in private sector investment to build a power plant for the Shibirghan gas field.  And we will eventually donate $150 million to refurbish and expand the Kajaki dam complex, which will triple power output for the 1.5 million people in the Hilmand River Valley.
