Qatar joins consortium to advance gas link to Pakistan
The project involves a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU), a jetty and a pipeline to shore that will supply Pakistan with natural gas. According to QP, the FSRU will deliver 5.6 billion gallons by 2018 to help meet the nation's demand for natural gas and a strong gas and distribution market.
"This consortium will bring together partners with a proven track record of industry-leading performance and a history of delivering projects on time and on budget, while focusing on environmental stewardship,” Saad Sherida Al Kaabi, president and CEO of Qatar Petroleum, said. "Forming this consortium with Total, Mitsubishi, ExxonMobil and Hoegh represents a significant milestone that complements Pakistan’s successful effort to meet the growing demand for clean-burning natural gas in this important market. Qatar Petroleum is proud to partner with these distinguished companies to help meet Pakistan’s energy needs.”
