JJVL to increase LPG production by 100 tons/day
KARACHI: Jamshoro Joint Venture Limited (JJVL) has announced to increase its liquid petroleum gas (LPG) production by 100 tons/day to 400 tons/day. Following a steep reduction of liquid petroleum gas (LPG) availability in the country owing to the shutdown of some oil refineries and reduced production by Oil & Gas Development Company (OGDCL), JJVL is making an all-out effort to increase its production to meet the LPG requirements of over 500,000 homes which are not connected to the national gas grid. Iqbal Z. Ahmed, chairman of JJVL, and a leading energy entrepreneur, visited the JJVL Plant, located in Deh Shah Bokhari, to ensure that there were no impediments to a sustained LPG supply chain countrywide by maintaining optimal production at the JJVL plant. “The current production, at JJVL, of over 300 MT per day is expected to increase to over 400 MT per day shortly thus saving Pakistan millions of dollars in foreign exchange and providing energy to the far-flung areas of the country and the underprivileged,” a statement said. JJVL represents a replacement value of $200 million and can process 325 mmscfd of gas per day. To date, since 2005, JJVL has produced over 1.6 million tonnes of LPG and over 600,000 tons of NGL.
