    Consider the miserable plight of the average Pakistani electricity consumer. With about 50 percent less electricity generation capability than the actual demand, Pakistan's national grid is facing more than a 5,000 megawatt shortfall in power generation, leading to blackouts in both urban and rural areas of the country. Due to unscheduled shortages by the National Power Control Center, urban areas are facing unscheduled minimum 8-hour power blackouts each day, while in rural areas the blackouts can last as long as 14 hours.:tsk::tsk:

    The situation is equally miserable in the country's compressed natural gas sector, which is now facing three or four days per week with suspension of gas deliveries to the country's textile sector, while the gas supply to non-textile industry has been suspended indefinitely:rofl::rofl::rofl:

    This is a threat to get uranium from Australia.

    This Thar Coal Underground gassification is the newest fad of the pakistanis

    This topic has been debated ad nauseam in their media but still they are clueless

    Some genius scientist is selling " snake oil " to the pakistani people and government and
    a pilot project of 50 Mwe is being set up to demonstrate the achievements of Pakistani scientists

    But the coal is of very poor quality and Pakistan has NEITHER the technology NOR the money
    for a large scale commercially viable power plant

    And finally No aid is coming for this project SO ultimately money will be pocketed and power
    cuts will only get worse

    They should be careful.

    The Gas may explode underground and they will have mud on their face!

    Our coal fields in jharia have been on fire for decades. Have we tried this hare brained scheme-- is it a viable scheme.

    Under ground Coal gassification is still a new technology and an expensive one at that

    It is still developing like another technology called Coal bed methane

    But the primary purpose of having coal based electricity is cheap power

    But these technologies increase the cost because the amount of coal to handled is in millions of tonnes

    But the future belongs to cleaner use of coal
