Pakistan will continue gas reliance in next decade

Gas-fired power will contribute an average of 31% to its power mix, Fitch Solutions projected. 

Pakistan is expected to continue its reliance on natural gas as Fitch Solutions projected it will contribute an average of 31% in the next ten years. 

In 2022, Fitch estimated that gas-fired power made up 36% of its generation mix. 

“As domestic production is insufficient to meet the market's demand, Pakistan is a net importer of natural gas through pipelines and liquified natural gas (LNG) shipments,” Fitch noted in a report. 

“As a result, Pakistan, with its deteriorating economic situation, is highly exposed to elevated spot LNG prices on the international market since the Russian-Ukraine war.”
