Government of PakistanWork on North-South Pipeline to begin in March 2021: Nadeem Babar

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Prime Minister’s Special Assistant on Petroleum Division Nadeem Babar has said that the work on the North-South Pipeline will be started in March 2021, adding that holistic reforms are being introduced in the Pipeline Sector.

While addressing a Press Conference along with the Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Syed Shibli Faraz in Islamabad on Wednesday, the Special Assistant said that there will be no shortage of gas in the Country as the government is making all-out efforts in this regard.

Nadeem Babar said that LNG terminals are being run on full capacity while arrangements are being made to import around 1,300 cubic feet of LNG to meet domestic needs.

The Special Assistant said that it’s unfortunate that a negative media campaign is being run against the government about LNG through fudged statistics. He said that the present government has imported 35 Cargo Ships of LNG in the last 27 months at a 20 percent low rate as compared to expensive LNG agreements signed by the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s (PML-N) previous government with Qatar.

Nadeem Babar said that the government has also allowed the Private Sector to construct LNG terminals in the Country and two companies have shown their readiness to establish these facilities in Pakistan.

In addition, he said that the last PML-N regime had established two LNG terminals with the government’s guarantee of running these facilities, inflicting huge cost on the national exchequer.
