KPT join hands with Railways

Karachi Port Trust (KPT) joins hands with Pakistan Railways and private entities for the development of virtual pipeline facility. The private enterprise from M/s LNG Easy Singapore is already operating successfully in this business with similar projects in China, Malaysia, Myanmar and Vietnam. The ceremony was well attended by senior management officials of KPT, Pakistan Railways and LNG Easy. On signing MoU among KPT, LNG Easy (Pvt) Limited, and Pakistan Railways, the nominal personalities from both sides were present in the august ceremony. KPT will allocate suitable berths for this purpose and arrangements for the transportation of ISO tanks to up-country through Pakistan Railways. This will further enhance the revenue stream for both KPT and Railways. The process involves transfer of LNG from ships to ISO tanks through a Mobile Filling Platform (MFP) and thereafter to their respective destinations. LNG Easy and Metro-gas will re-gasify the LNG at end-user premises and will also provide gas storage units.
