    Pakistan hopes for Russia’s support in overcoming energy crisis

    Pakistan hopes that Russia will provide support for overcoming the severest energy crisis, Pakistan’s Minister for Water and Power Khawaja Muhammad Asif said.

    “At present, Pakistan suffers electricity shortage because it did not increase its capacities over the last 10-15 years,” Asif said in an exclusive interview with ITAR-TASS on Monday.

    “Electricity increases in price permanently, particularly in summer. Its shortage prevents the expansion of the economic base and has a negative impact on the growth of GDP, industrial efficiency and the amount of export,” he said.“I hope that we’ll succeed in improving the situation in this sphere before the parliamentary elections scheduled for 2018,” Asif said.“We’ve worked out and implemented a plan for increasing electricity production in the next five years, and for expanding and modernizing power lines,” he said.

    “Firstly, we seek to guarantee energy sufficiency in the long term. Secondly, it is necessary to make electricity accessible for the population by setting a reasonable price,” Asif said.Pakistan seeks to develop the coal industry and the gas sector, as well as the hydropower industry, he said.

    THE idea to import natural gas from Iran through a pipeline emerged for the first time in 1953. But this did not materialise yet :taunt1:

    the 1994 energy crisis. … At that time Pakistan was talking of two other gas pipeline projects. One of them was to get gas from Qatar via an underwater pipeline, and another was to import it from Turkmenistan. Qatar later withdrew. :lol:

    China offers Pakistan all-out help to resolve energy crisis If so then why running after Russians :sarcastic: quoted by paki paper just a moth ago

    When lucrative business opportunities unfold themselves, everone wants a piece of pie. Russia has been trying to penetrate Pakistan energy market for years. Gazprom is in negotiations for several big tag projects in Pakistan and so are the Japanese, Koreans and Turks.

    The demand for immidiate increase in production is at least 4000MW and our vision us to double the production from13.000MW to 26.000MW in year the year 2020.

    Even Indian Adani group has plans to build plants in Gujarat Kuch border area to export upto 10.000MW electricity to Pakistan within five year.

    Did we ask India? No, but the money is good and obviously people who understand economics won't have to ask why Russia wants to.enter the market.

    China haa started a JV with Pakistan to build first two of total ten 660MW thermal planta at Gadani, west of Karachi. The ground breaking cereminy took place last month.

    Two more 660MW thermal plants in Mianwali are under construction with the help of China and will be comoleted in 30 months.

    These are coal fired designed and the fuel will be produced domestically from Thar and Badin coal field which hold resp 175 billion tons of medium quality brown coal and 1 billion tons of high grade (cokes) coal.

    This is the first time physical work has started to so many plants under one government.

    No, it only requests World Bank only!

    And the following report, indicates personal request by Gilani and not from Pakistan.

    The interesting thing is that the comments you see in Dawn and other Pak dailies by local Pak folks from Lahore and other parts are way saner and of acknowledging nature of their shortcomings and possible ways to fix that rather then the confrontational arguments you see here on DFI by some Pak folks who are way detached from reality.

    Pakistani DFI posters will claim, the commentators ( in Pakistani media websites) are paid Indian bots.

    Trade with India is not possible unless we both move away from the Kashmir/terrorism rhetoric and neutralise bilateral trade. We link everything to Kashmir and you link everything to alledged terrorim in India.
