Pakistan begins constructing LNG pipeline

Construction of a pipeline that would enable Pakistan to import liquefied natural gas from China has kicked off, Pakistan’s Minister of Petroleum and Natural Resources Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said. 

China and Pakistan will jointly fund the construction of the 700 km long pipeline, Press Trust of India reports.

Minister added that Chinese funds will help the energy-starved Pakistan complete the Iraq-Pakistan gas pipeline.

The central hub for the China Pakistan economic corridor, that aims to link Gwadar to the rest of Pakistan, will be the Gwadar port.

Pakistan recently started LNG imports through Engro Elengy operated terminal in a push to cut reliance on conventional fuels for its power generation. Engro Elengy chartered Excelerate Energy’s 150,900 cbm FSRU Exquisite which is docked at Port Qasim where Pakistan’s first LNG import facilities with a regasification capacity of 4.5 mtpa, are located.
