Pakistan’s economy has been growing at an average growth rate of almost 3.6 % for the last 5 years and demand of energy is increasing rapidly. Historic data available vide HDIP Year Energy Book 2014, the Primary energy consumption, which includes transformation (23.6 MTOE) and use for Non Energy Purpose (3.4 MTOE), stood at 66.8 MMTOE in FY 2014. However, the existing quantum of energy consumption is not true reflection of the actual demand due to supply side constraints.
During FY 2014 out of total, 46.3% (30.96 MTOE) of energy needs are met with indigenous gas while oil account for 34.4% (23.01 MTOE), LPG 0.5% (0.36 MTOE), Electricity (Hydro, Nuclear & Imported) 13.3% (8.92 MTOE) and coal 5.4% (3.59 MTOE).
During fiscal year 2013-14, the oil supplies showed significant increase of 9.7% while the gas supplies decreased slightly by 0.6% but the overall Primary commercial energy supply mix increased by 3.5% as compared to the previous year. The exhibit below shows the growth in Pakistan energy supply mix over the last five years.
