‘Pakistan gasoline demand to triple by 2025’


DUBAI – Population and economic growth will help Pakistan’s motor gasoline consumption triple in the next fifteen years, the head of Attock Refinery (ARL) said on Tuesday. “There is huge demand for motor gasoline,” Adil Khattak, chief executive officer of the 45,000 barrels per day (bpd) refinery told a conference organised by Argus. Pakistan’s gasoline demand is around two million tonnes, Khattak’s figures showed, and set to double to four million tonnes by 2020.
He also said demand for fuel oil was set to rise to 12 million tonnes by 2025 from the current 10 million and for diesel to just over 10 million tonnes from below nine million tonnes. “Fuel oil demand is rising due to higher thermal power generation,” he said.
