Goals & Objectives

  • Over time, Pakistan’s natural gas demand has grown significantly and supply is unable to  keep  pace with  the  demand  due  to  low  availability  of  natural  gas  and  inadequate transmission and distribution infrastructure in place. Pakistan’s current demand of natural gas is furnished from its gas fields in accordance with the regulations, pricing and terms set forth by OGRA and two distribution companies SNGPL and SSGC. This arrangement limits the possibilities of choice, thereby leading to a very restricted gas market.
  • Pakistan Government’s National Energy Strategy is focused on ensuring energy security and in particular long-term natural gas supply through establishment of LNG import terminals infrastructure in securing alternative gas supply sources. LNG terminals projects aim to ensure energy security, which is expected to lead to development of conditions for the emergence of the natural gas market, and bring economic benefits to the State, consumers and the company executing the project.
  • PLTL finds its presence in the midstream segment of the LNG value chain and will solely deal with reception, storage & regasification of LNG. PLTL’s delivery strategy will drive future operations and maintenance. Primary operations encompass receipt, storage, regasification, and transmission of LNG to its customers.
  • Developing a robust delivery strategy is imperative to the success of an LNG import terminals, PLTL’s delivery strategy acknowledges and revolves around two key aspects, meeting the timelines and running the operation within budget. Moreover, PLTL’s delivery strategy is about taking a ‘lifecycle’ approach to ensure the final asset can be operated and maintained over long term to deliver high reliability and availability to its customers.
