Pakistan’s Monthly Fuel Imports Hit 4-Year High Amid Devastating Heatwaves

Pakistan’s monthly fuel oil imports are set to hit a four-year high in June as the world’s fifth most populous nation struggles to buy liquefied natural gas (LNG) for power generation amid devastating heatwaves that are driving up demand.

The resurgence in fuel demand at power plants underscores the energy crisis faced by the nation of 220 million and slows its efforts to switch to cleaner fuel.

The country’s fuel oil imports could climb to about 700,000 tonnes this month, after hitting 630,000 tonnes in May, according to estimates. Imports last peaked at 680,000 tonnes in May 2018 and 741,000 tonnes in June 2017.
