Pakistan Asks Qatar for More LNG to Help Ease Its Fuel Crunch

  • Government asking for additional shipments every month
  • Fuel shortage is forcing Pakistan to resort to blackouts

Pakistan is in discussions for increased deliveries of liquefied natural gas from Qatar, the latest effort by the South Asian nation to help ease a crippling fuel crunch.

The government asked Qatar -- its biggest LNG supplier -- for several additional shipments every month starting as soon as this year, according to people with knowledge of the matter. Pakistan is requesting additional cargoes as part of its long-term contract, one of the people said.
