Load Shedding Free Pakistan – PEPCO


Load Shedding Ended in Pakistan

PEPCO (Pakistan Electric Power Company), which is responsible with other subsidiary companies (GEPCO, MEPCO, FESCO, LESCO, IESCO etc) for distribution of electricity in whole Pakistan except Karachi, claimed today that load shedding from whole Pakistan has been ended. At the time being, domestic consumers along with industries including Textile Industry, Ghee Industry, Flour Industry and Cement Industry are included in this so called “Load Shedding Free Environment”. Commercial Feeders will be scheduled for a load shedding of only 1 hour daily. Director General PEPCO said that they are trying very hard to give an end to electric load shedding, totally and permanently.

It is also being reported that 4 power plant units will also connected to national grid in near future, which are closed from some time.
But still, there is load shedding of 8~10 hours in Karachi. KESC (Karachi Electric Supply Corporation) is solely responsible for electric supply in Karachi. KESC said that it is hard for them to decrease electricity short fall due to the shortage of gas supply.
It seems that this continuity of electric supply in Pakistan has become possible only due to the change in weather and not due to any management tactic or any development of PEPCO, WAPDA or any other government department. Air Conditioners are not being used at homes or offices these days due to winter season so thousands of Mega Watts Electricity is saved which is automatically result in continuous power supply. Government is requested to make some permanent arrangements to imprison this giant of load shedding.

IPI Iran-Pakistan-India and IP Iran-Pakistan Gas Pipeline Project


Iran-Pakistan-India Gas Pipeline

Iran-Pakistan-India Gas Pipeline or simply IPI Project is also called “Peace Project”. Many companies from different countries are interested in IPI Pipeline Project; Gazprom (Russia), BHP Billiton (Australia), PETRONAS (Malaysia), Total (France), Royal Dutch Shell, BG Group and GAIL India.
Route for IPI Pipeline was proposed from South Pars Oil Field Iran to Khuzdar, Karachi, Multan and then to New Delhi. 7.5 Billion US Dollars total cost was estimated. And the project was to be started in 2009 and completed in 2013. 2775 km of 56 inches pipeline was to be laid down.
But due to the influence of USA, India has detached itself from IPI Pipeline.

IP Iran-Pakistan Gas Pipeline

After separation of India, now there are only two partners of pipeline project, so it has been renamed as IP Iran-Pakistan Pipeline Project. Iran and Pakistan signed Gas Sales and Purchase Agreement on 06 June, 2009. Some of the key points of this agreement are:
Iran will supply 750 MMSCFD gas to Pakistan for 25 years.
Project was to be started in September 2009 and target date for completion is June 2014.
Route for Iran Pakistan Pipelines will be Iran-Gwadar-Bhong.
Total length of the IP Pipeline is 2100 kilometers. Iran has completed its 1100 km pipeline and Pakistan has yet to start.
Diameter of pipeline has been reduced to 42 inches. Pakistan has to spend an amount of approximately 3.5 Billion Dollars. Sui Northern Gas Pipeline Limited Pakistan, Sui Southern Gas Company Limited Pakistan, The National Iranian Gas Company Iran and Khatam ol Anbia Company Iran are responsible for the erection of pipeline.
250% increase in gas consumption in Pakistan is expected. Iran has to support its week economy and Pakistan is in need of natural gas.

History of IPI Pipeline

Lt. Colonel Malik Aftab Ahmed Khan, a Civil Engineer of Military College of Engineering, Risalpur conceived this idea in 1950. He named it “Persian Pipeline”. Ex. Foreign Minister of Iran Ali Shams Ardekani and Rajendra Pachauri DG of TATA Energy Research Institute discussed this concept. In 1993 an MOU was signed between India and Iran. But after the participation of Pakistan in 1994, the project became feasible.  

USA Role in IPI Pipeline

USA has sanctioned ban on Iran under Iran/Libya Sanction Act 1996. USA has been succeeded to detach India from IPI Pipeline. USA has proposed an alternative gas supply to South Asia from Central Asia; this project is called TAPI Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India Pielines.

Russian and Chinese Role in IPI Pipeline

Russian, Iran and Pakistan want multi-polarity system in the world. Europe depends on Russia for its 41% gas requirements.
China is already considering an oil pipeline from Middle East to West China through a shortest route from Pakistan. China has played a key role in the development of Iranian South Pars Oil Field. If China becomes a partner of this pipeline project then financing will become a “Non Issue” for Pakistan and Pakistan will also earn revenue from the transit of gas through its territory.

Iranian Electricity Transmission

Iran has also offered to build an electricity transmission line from Iran to Pakistan, India and China. Iran has also interested to supply electricity to Bangladesh.

Baluchistan and IP Pipeline Project

Peaceful Baluchistan is too much necessary for the successful completion and coming into operation of this project. BLA (Baluchistan Liberation Army) and other militant groups can be dangerous for it.
Trans-National Gas Pipeline will give strength to Pakistani Economy and Baluchistan Province will also be developed through this project. A Technical Institute and an Engineering University should be urgently built in Baluchistan and graduates from this institute and University should be employed in this project. And a comprehensive share from the income of this pipeline may also be used for the development of Baluchistan.
