New Delhi : Indian Oil Corp, the nation’s largest oil firm, is keen on joining gas utility GAIL India Ltd for implementation of the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan- Pakistan-India natural gas pipeline, reports PTI.

IOC wants to be equal partner with GAIL in the USD 9 billion project with equal rights to sell gas imported from the pipeline, officials said.
