Exploration and production in the country is governed by concession contracts for onshore work and a production sharing agreement for offshore. The main permits our company works in are Bhit/Badhra (40%) and Kadanwari (18.42%). We also have shared in the permits Latif (33.3%), Zamzama (17.75%) and Sawan (23.7%). Development in 2018 included drilling new wells in producing fields to optimise production, improving existing onshore facilities and rigless operations to combat a decline in production. At the end of 2019 we will open a solar plant with 10 MW to support production facilities in the field in Bhit.
Our work in Pakistan
We have been in Pakistan since 2000 in the Exploration & Production and Gas & Power sectors, but our charitable work in the country began in the 1970s.

Gas extraction in the country
Natural gas production in the country in 2018 equalled 3 million m3 a day. After winning an international tender in 2017 we began supplying liquefied natural gas in Pakistan. We will provide the Pakistani national LNG company with a load every month for 15 years, for a total of more than 11 million tonnes of LNG in 180 loads.
We create energy
In Pakistan we are opening a photovoltaic plant with 10 MW. We have also signed up to the "Clean Beach" initiative, for cleaning coasts, for which we picked up 350 kg of plastic. We also planted 2,200 mangroves in Shah Bandar in 2019, to protect the coastal ecosystem.
Energy in Bhit
The photovoltaic plant, of which we are an operator with 40%, opened in 2019 and will produce about 20 GWh per year. This energy will be used directly at the industrial site, thus reducing gas consumption and preventing more than 144,000 tonnes of CO₂ from being released into the atmosphere.Discover Bhit
