For anything to grow, energy is needed. More so, if the growth is rapid. All of these factors raise the South Asian region's hunger for energy.

For better utilization of resources, it needs to be ensured that procurement and transport of energy is done efficiently and in an inexpensive manner. Not only energy but materials like water, condensate, solids like coal, iron ore etc. for industries need to be transported from one place to another in an efficient and economical way if South Asia is to prosper. This paper looks into the various aspects of constructing Energy Pipelines Networks for South Asia.
