It is pertinent to mention here that Federal Minister for Petroleum Ghulam Sarwar Khan remarked yesterday that the LNG projects cannot be shut, but can only be reviewed after 10 years.
Talking to newsmen in Islamabad, the minister extended the support of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) led federal government to private sector for importing LNG.
The government will help the private sector in importing LNG in every possible way, he continued.
“Prime Minister Imran Khan will try to get maximum relief on LNG projects during his upcoming visit to Qatar as the projects cannot be shunned,” he said.
Criticizing past government of the Pakistan Muslim League –Nawaz (PML-N), Mr Sarwar said the incumbent government is facing the consequences of their ‘ill’ planning.
