Federal Minister for Energy Omar Ayub has said that practical steps have not been taken for oil and gas reserves in Pakistan for many years.
According to details, in a press briefing regarding the shortage of cases in Sindh province, Federal Minister for Energy Omar Ayub said that oil and gas reserves have been declining by 7.5 per cent annually for which no special provision has been made by previous governments. No action has been taken.
The Federal Minister said that if the Sindh government gives way for a new pipeline covering 17 km, an additional 150 million cubic feet of gas could be supplied to the province daily.
He further said that the citizens of Karachi are also facing power problems and in this regard K Electric should have invested more.
Informing K Electric, he said that two power plants of 500, 500 MW should come next year as the federal government has to look after the people of Karachi and not K Electric.
