There is a critical need to develop a gas sector master plan for Afghanistan's emerging gas sector. The master plan would cover a 20-year horizon (2015-2035) and would entail (i) preparation of gas demand and supply outlook and scenarios; (ii) development of market assessments and netback analysis; (iii) review current policies and plans in context of gas development; (iv) assessment of the financial requirements and needs; (v) evaluation of pricing options for various segments viz domestic sales and transit/exports; (vi) develop a planning model and train Ministry of Mines and Petroleum staff on its use; (vii) assessment of environmental, socioeconomic, and non-monetary impacts; (viii) review of other countries' experiences with gas supply chain development including compressed natural gas (CNG) sector; and (ix) formulation of an Afghanistan Gas Sector Master Plan and Implementation Strategy (with sequencing of priority investment projects).
