Highlighting the immense growth potential for alternative sources of energy in Pakistan, FUELLING PAKISTAN represents a unique opportunity for experts and leading energy players from around the world to capitalise on the enormous potential that Pakistan’s energy sector holds for them. The largest trade exhibition in Asia, FUELLING PAKISTAN has attracted widespread participation from over 80 companies around the globe in the last three years and with each passing year, the success of this widely attended forum continues to grow.
The mounting interest of investors in Pakistan’s energy sector has been encouraged by the steady economic trends witnessed during the last six years with growth recorded at a yearly average rate of 6.6%. During the fiscal year 2007-08, despite an anticipated slowdown, Pakistan’s GDP grew by 5.8%, while foreign direct investment inflows reached US$ 3 billion. Pakistan therefore continues to remain an attractive investment destination for foreign investors and leading companies around the world.
However, given the rising prices of oil, the demand for natural gas is growing at a much faster pace than the existing supply base of gas reserves can meet. Now more so than ever before, Pakistan needs investors who can bring in a steady supply of gas into the country and induct technical expertise and state-of-the-art technology and equipment into its oil and gas sector.
With the Government’s policies aimed at creating an investor-friendly environment, Pakistan has all the necessary
drivers for the adoption of top quality energy projects and is well equipped to deal with an influx of investments within its oil and gas sector.
As is the trend every year, Fuelling Pakistan will serve to highlight Pakistan’s growing focus on alternate energy sources like CNG, LPG and LNG and will provide a much needed platform to exhibitors for showcasing the latest technologies, products and services to an audience of potential investors and buyers from around the globe.
Time to move away from conventional sources
wHEN British Prime
Minister Gordon Brown
wHEN British Prime Minister Gordon Brown recently emphasized the need for the West to end “the dictatorship of oil”, it was a clear indication, among other things, of the desperation in global markets in the face of what is an impending energy crisis for the world at large. That the members of the American Congress whom Mr Brown was addressing responded with rather enthusiastic clapping was a mere confirmation of that desperation. Issues of geopolitics aside, the fact remains that the developed world has for long understood the necessity to diversify its energy profile. The fossil fuels are fast running out of stock and it is only logical to have a few alternatives in place before that phase lands on the planet. From biofuels to ethanol mix and from windmills to photovoltaic solar panels, they are all being tried out across the developed world, with some in the developing world also catching up at a reasonable pace. The most advanced experiment in this regard came a few months ago when a private airline et flew from London to Amsterdam using jet fuel that was mixed with coconut oil. There were detractors who called it a publicity stunt for the commercial airliner, but nobody can deny that it was also a massive boost for the whole activity related to locating sources of alternative energy. Regardless of whether it was a genuine scientific experiment, or a publicity stunt, the eco-flight did indicate a major step forward in man’s search for a feasible biofuel to cut down his dependence on fossil fuel on the one hand, while addressing the hazardous issue of global warming on the other. The eco-plane ran only one of its four engines on the experimental fuel which was a calculated concoction of oils derived from coconut and the babassu plants. The other three engines consumed the standard jet fuel. And even the biofuel-powered engine used an 80:20 blend of conventional and novel fuels. In simple terms, not more than five per cent of the plane’s entire fuel load consisted of the novelty and that has given ground for the critics to take out their daggers. There are miles and miles and miles to go before one can be sure of biofuel’s potential as an aviation fuel. Even if the technicality is taken care of, it would still take more than a dozen acres of crop to fill one plane if it were to rely on coconut oil alone. But, undeniably, the trial meant much to activists around the world. Their efforts include experimentation with ethanol derived from palm, corn, molasses and jatropha. Besides, interest has also been shown in farming algae which is likely to throw up a few surprises in the time to come. Ethanol derived from molasses, however, has shown the biggest potential yet because of its potency and commercial viability. It is no wonder that the developed world is importing huge quantities of both ethanol and molasses from around the world to continue its march towards the now well-established E-10 and E-85 blends. And it is here that Pakistan comes into the picture, being a leading exporter of the two commodities. Pakistan is exporting over a million tons of molasses and three times as much of ethanol, which appears to be in contradiction with the demands of logic. While we are definitely earning a few bucks – around $6 million from molasses and $150 million from ethanol per year – but we are surely missing out on a great opportunity to work towards cutting down our own oil import bill by encouraging the use of ethanol blends in automobiles. With sugarcane being one of our main crops, the potential of molasses in our energy profile can be seen from the fact that last year the Faisalabad Electric Supply Corporation signed a power purchase agreement with a private sugar mill under which it would receive over 2500MW of molassesbased electricity per year. This, naturally, is surplus power for the mill concerned which first meets its own energy needs. If this is what one private initiative can do, it is not difficult to work out how radically things can change if it is promoted on a national scale. But strangely, people concerned are too happy to promote the export of molasses. It is not without reason that people across the country have to put up with erratic power supply. With the kind of power crisis the country is facing for the last couple of years, it is not illogical to expect the government to be working actively on finding both conventional and alternative means of forestalling a potential calamity. But the rather unsung death of a pilot project to try out E10 gasoline that has 10 per cent blending of ethanol is an indicator of things moving in the other direction. The project was launched a couple of years ago, but it soon met a fate that is not a rarity in our context. Seen against that backdrop, the rising quantum of ethanol export, mostly to European destinations, carries negative significance and disquieting dimensions. The efficacy of ethanol-blended fuels around the globe is something that is no more an issue of debate anywhere; its acceptance is universal. As things stand today, ethanol lends account for more than 35 per cent of all automotive fuels sold in the United States. Besides, the E10 blend has been approved for use by every major automobile manufacturer in the developed world. The blend has also been found to be compatible with the existing service station infrastructure which means there is no additional cost on the maintenance front for the consumers. The world, in fact, is now moving ahead with the idea of using ethanol as a full-scale alternative fuel. The E85 blend – 85 per cent ethanol mixed with just 15 per cent of regular gasoline – is the first step in that direction. Currently, it can only be used in flexible fuel vehicles which number over five million in the US alone and the manufacturers are known to have committed to increasing production to two million a year by the next year. With the world making major strides in that direction, it is surprising that Pakistan is content with exporting ethanol instead of making the most of this opportunity through value addition a d coordination between ethanol producers and oil marketing companies. The argument by certain lobbies that the price differential between regular gasoline and ethanol blends is not exotic enough to promote the product also needs to be seen in due perspective. For the consumers it may be a matter of a rupee or two per liter, but for the national economy it is a matter of billions in view of possible reduction in the annual oil import bill. A bigger question for those skeptical of the marketing viability of ethanol blends is: How does the West find it feasible despite importing ethanol from abroad, while we find it an economically deficient proposition even when we have it in abundance at home? The issue certainly deserves a serious rethink. If an effort is made, there is luckily no technology deficit that may make us stutter on the path. By reviving the project and keeping a close eye on its progress, Pakistan can also hope to join the global bandwagon. The success of the British eco-flight was described as th “equivalent of those exciting first few steps of a baby”. In our own context, revival of the E-10 project may have the same connotation. Having said that, ethanol blend is merely one of the many options that we have available to us. As per official announcements, the country has coal reserves that can produce energy equivalent to more than 400 billion barrels of oil or over 850 trillion cubic feet of gas. But, unfortunately, the coal has stayed where it was while we have been making ourselves happy with statistics. The coal reserves of Thar have often been cited in recent months by all and sundry as a possible way out of our energy crisis. There are some issues of technicality, however, that deserve a clear policy direction. Before putting the Thar coal project on the fast track for increased power generation, it would make greater sense if, for instance, the Jamshoro plant based on Lakhra coal efficiently used. At present, it is working
around 25 per cent of its capacity. Wapda finds it mush less cost-e fective than its earlier estimates and the private sector is only interested in getting involved if it has a guaranteed buyer of the power it would subsequently produce. Coal extricated from Lakhra mines – as well as that from Sonda mines near Thatta – is mostly sold off to various industries rather than used for power generation. If the government could first enhance power generation at Jamshoro to its optimum capacity, it will solve not just the crisis in practical terms, but will also settle many a nerve in Sindh. A look at the country’s existing energy profile is enough to suggest a move in that direction.
