Pakistan receives fifth LNG shipment

Pakistan’s first LNG import terminal, located at Port Qasim, has received its fifth cargo of the chilled gas.

The 150,900 cbm FSRU Exquisite, which is being used as Pakistan’s first LNG import terminal, docked at the Port Qasim facilities on Sunday carrying a cargo from Qatar, the world’s largest LNG producer.

Pakistan started using LNG to fire up its power plants in March of this year to reduce its reliance on importing furnace oil and diesel.

This is the fifth shipment of LNG for Pakistan since the start up of Port Qasim facilities in March, including the commissioning cargo,” Sheikh Imran-ul-Haque, Chief Executive Officer of Engro Elengy, recently told LNG World News.

Engro Elengy is operating the country’s first import terminal with a capacity for regasification of up to 4.5 million tons of LNG per year.
