LNG is the only solution to Pakistan’s energy crisis: PM Abbasi

Inaugurating the second Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) terminal at Karachi’s Port Qasim on Sunday, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that LNG was the only solution to Pakistan’s energy crisis.
“If you don’t add more gas into the system, you cannot fight the energy crisis,” he insisted, adding that other methods to produce energy are either too expensive or too slow.
The terminal was established by Engro Terminal Limited within a record time of 330 days and has the capacity to regasify up to 600 mmscfd. Applauding the services of private sector companies that worked on the terminal, Abbasi said that the project was a “real example of cooperation between private sector and the government”.
