ISLAMABAD   -  To overcome the elec­tricity shortage, the government has float­ed tender for the pur­chase of 10 Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) car­gos from the spot mar­ket. Pakistan LNG Lim­ited (PLL) has invited bids from internation­ al suppliers for the delivery of ten cargoes for next months of July, August and Septem­ber. PLL has invited bids for the supply of two LNG Car­goes in July, five for the month of August and three for the months of September have been invited.

Ear­lier, PLL had procured two LNG cargoes for the month of May at $29.6700/mmbtu and $24.1500/mmbtu. Start­ing from July, Pakistan will re­ceive one additional LNG car­go from its new long term contract with Qatar.
