New gas supply mostly to go to power plants

The gas supply for industrial and home use will face shortages in the next few years as most of the additional supply will be used to feed new gas-fired power and fertilizer plants.

According to the latest figures from the Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry, total gas demand will reach 11,049 million standard cubic feet per day in 2019, rising by 1,361 mmscfd or almost 15 percent from the estimated 9,688 mmscfd demand this year.

Of the additional 1,361 mmscfd supply needed, about 1,100 mmscfd will be used for electricity generation while another 200 mmscfd will be for the fertilizer industry.
