Pakistan "Mashal" LNG Project the Progress So Far!


Pakistan has formulated a comprehensive 25-year energy plan wherein the country's indigenous natural gas resources are insufficient and unlikely to meet the increasing demand for gas beyond 2010. The solution lies in importing natural gas through transnational pipelines and Liquefied Natural Gas or LNG as it is commonly referred to.
