LNG import from Qatar to begin from March: MD PSO

KARACHI: Managing Director Pakistan State Oil (PSO), Sheikh Inamul Haq Tuesday announced that the import of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) from Qatar will begin from the first week of March.

In a media statement, the MD PSO said Pakistan will import 400 mmcf LNG per day from Qatar.

Last week Pakistan and Qatar inked an agreement for supply of around US one billion dollars worth of LNG to Pakistan annually to help the country meet its energy shortfall.

The agreement on Long Term LNG Sale and Purchase was signed during the visit of Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif’s two-day visit to Qatar.
