Exxon Mobil, Royal Dutch Shell among groups to build five LNG terminals in Pakistan

Reader's Pick

Pakistan has approved the construction of five liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminals by groups that include Exxon Mobil Corp and Royal Dutch Shell, aiming to triple imports and ease the country’s chronic gas shortage.

The five terminals could be in operation within two to three years, Omar Ayub Khan, Pakistan‘s minister of power and petroleum, said in an interview on September 20.

Pakistan is chronically short of gas for power production and to supply manufacturers such as fertilizer makers, hobbling the country’s economy.

“It will make a significant dent in the gas shortage,” Khan said.

The identities of the five groups were reported earlier by Bloomberg.
