FAISALABAD:


Algeria wants to increase bilateral trade by establishing direct contact with the business community of Pakistan and by exporting liquefied natural gas, according to Algerian Ambassador Dr Ahmed Benflis, who was speaking to members of the Faisalabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FCCI) here on Saturday.


As Pakistan faces acute energy shortages, Benflis suggested that Algeria could help Islamabad by exporting liquefied natural gas (LNG). Similarly, Pakistani businessmen should explore opportunities and export rice and textile products directly to Algeria.

He stressed that both countries should expand business-to-business ties by tapping all available channels as Algerian businessmen were dealing with only two major Pakistani businessmen, who hail from Karachi.

LNG may be good option but only for short term…As we can take the Floating Re-gasification terminal in rent, I think it should be short term solution for long term solution we should explore the new Oil & Gas reserves especially potential Shale gas reserves of 200 tcf in Pakistan…
