Amir Khan, Pakistan’s head of chancery, says the country has commenced the purchase of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from Nigeria.
Khan told NAN on Tuesday that the first consignment of 70,000 metric tons of gas arrived at Pakistan’s Port Qasim in Karachi.
He said the importation marked the beginning of a major business expansion between Nigeria and Pakistan in the oil and gas sector.
“In the future, we are expecting much trade in this as well as in other sectors,’’ he said.
The diplomat said Pakistan utilised gas heavily for both domestic and generation purposes.
Prior to the commencement of gas importation from Nigeria, Pakistan was importing from Qatar to meet its domestic gas needs.
Pakistan recently opened a scholarship offer for 50 Nigerians for undergraduate studies in science-related courses at some of its higher institutions.
It also announced plans to stage an agricultural equipment and machinery exhibition in Nigeria to make its technological achievements in agriculture available to Nigerian farmers.
Agricultural machinery expected to be exhibited would include rugged tractors and other equipment that could boost small and medium enterprises growth in Nigeria’s agricultural sector.
