ISLAMABAD: A shipment of 147,000 cubic feet of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) from Qatar arrived at the Karachi anchorage on Thursday in a Floating Storage Regasification Unit (FSRU).

The FSRU, after going through clearance, is expected to dock at Engro Corporation’s Elengy Terminal Pakistan Limited (ETPL), where the cargo will undergo ‘regasification’ before being injected into the Sui Southern Gas Company Ltd (SSGCL) network.

The FSRU will take approximately five hours to reach the terminal, and will begin offloading the cargo at 6:30pm this evening, an official said.The SSGCL is then required to transfer it to the Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Ltd (SNGPL) at the Zamzama-Sawan gas establishment.

The LNG will initially be provided to four Independent Power Producers (IPPs) in Punjab, including Kot Addu Power Company (Kapco). In the second phase of the operation, fuel will be used for Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) and in the third, it will be supplied to the fertiliser sector.
