Some time before a plan was laid to lay an oil pipeline from Iran to India, unfortunately it wil have to pass through pakistan. The then Indian govt. agreed to pay some 15 billion $ to pakistan to allow the pipeline to pass through their territory. But now they have second thoughts and may go for the alternative of laying the pipeline through sea which is much more expensive than paying pakistan 15 billion.
what do you all think? what should India do?

I dont know much about energy generation but

I feel India has not even started looking at alternative sources for energy as a backup plan.

We could use windmills, solar and even nuclear energy to save on expensive oil and natural gas.

Anyway, if the problem is of layingf pipelines though a now-hostile-not-sure-what-in-future Pakistan, it would be best to go that extra mile and lay the pipes though the sea.

Again, I am no expert at this, but as a lay-man, this is what I feel.

considering Pakistan, it would be almost like pouring 15bil down the drain... too risky. Pakistan may steal the oil on its way to India and that might eventually out more in the long run.

atleast if it's laid out undersea then they cant pilfer, though operating and maintenance costs definitely will be higher

considering oil problem, how much feasible will it be to airlift and deliver the oil to India from Iran instead of regular pipeline?
