K-Electric gets Nepra nod to use RLNG for its power plants

ISLAMABAD: The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) has allowed K-Electric to immediately start using re-gasified liquefied natural gas (RLNG) as alternative fuel to reduce electricity shortfalls in Karachi.

The permission has been granted on a provisional basis to ‘provide immediate relief to end-consumers’ as the regulator completes the normal legal and procedural processes and puts in place the mechanism for dealing with the difference in cost between imported RLNG and domestic gas that KE currently uses.
