Pakistan's power sector
is poised for a big boost with the recent
announcement of a US $600 million
financial package by the World Bank
(WB) to produce electricity from
untapped natural gas reserves in the
south-west region of the country. Several US, European
and Asian companies and banks will be involved in the
project. The aim is to install one steam and three gas turbine generators producing up to 586 MW. According to
the WB , the project would not displace the Jamali tribals in
Baluchistan and will fulfill all environmental requirements.
