Engro FSRU Expansion is a proposed LNG import terminal in Port Qasim, Pakistan.
- Owner: Engro Elengy Terminal, Excelerate Energy
- Location: Port Qasim, Pakistan
- Coordinates: 24.769704, 67.334731 (estimate)
- Capacity: 5.9 mtpa
- Status: Proposed
- Type: Import
- Start Year: 2020
Note: mtpa = million tonnes per year; bcfd = billion cubic feet per day; mmcfd = million cubic feet per day
As of January 2021, the project was awaiting government approval.
In June 2021, Pakistan media reported that the Pakistan government's Cabinet Committee on Energy had again failed to reach consensus on allowing Engro's LNG terminal to replace the existing Engro Elengy FSRU with the new expansion project as different stakeholders expressed their reservations about the move. One of these, Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited, voiced concern over possible disruption to gas supplies to power plants. The gas utility would have to pay damages if it could not provide gas to power plants which have "take-or-pay" agreements. The Energy Committee was seeking legal advice on the matter from the country's Law Division.
