According to Reuters, PGNiG – the Polish state-run gas firm – has doubled its gas output in Pakistan to over 0.5 million m3/d, following the recent launch of production at a new deposit in November 2016.
The firm reportedly imports the majority of gas that it sells from Russia’s Gazprom, and is looking to decrease that dependence.
Reuters claims that the firm commenced gas production at its Pakistani Rehman deposit, which has total reserves estimated at 4.5 billion m3, in 2015. To date, the firm has started three boreholes in Pakistan and is currently working on another.
Piotr Wozniak, the CEO of PGNiG, reportedly said: “We continue preparatory work to drill the next holes to further increase gas production.”
