WAKGROUP's Falcon Oil of Pakistan is the sponsor of a proposed oil refining complex in Dera Ismail Khan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. Since at least 2019, the company has been expecting the refinery would include an independent 100-MW power generation plant.[1]

In August 2017, Falcon Oil signed an agreement with China Energy Engineering Corp. to build the refinery and a "thermal gas oil unit."[2]

As of June 2021, the oil refining facility still appears to be planned,[3] but there have been no further developments regarding a related power unit and the project appears to be shelved.
