According to bank documents, the proposed project will develop a 40MW green-field gas-to-power plant which is expected to be located 20 km east of Sheberghan, and approximately 1 km west of the amine treatment plant (operated by Afghan Gas Enterprise (AGE)) at the Yatimtaq gas field in northwestern Afghanistan. It will supply power to Jawzjan (Sheberghan is its center), Faryarb, Sar-i-pul and other parts of the provinces in the Balkh region. It therefore forms part of the 2013 Power Sector Master Plan, which identifies this as the least cost option for increased domestic energy generation (up to 150 MW of installed capacity by means of gas-fired power plants).
