Pakistan learns a hard lesson now. If you want to play on the market for low-priced cargos you need to develop some capacity to take a broad band of possibilities. But they have never built an onshore terminal with enough tank capacity to absorb cargos that are not exactly tailored to demand. You know the drill – if you need something very specifically tailored to your needs, you pay top dollar. If you can take off the shelf with the mass-market stuff, you get it cheaper. FLNG sounds nice until you find out that you pay through the nose.
With an increasing gas crisis in the country, Pakistan will be buying an all-time high priced Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) for February 2021.
