Poland's PGNiG to Launch Gas Production in Pakistan


WARSAW, Nov 24 (Reuters) – Polish gas company PGNiG will launch gas production in December at its concession in Pakistan, it said on Tuesday.

Earlier this year the state-run group discovered a "tight" gas deposit in Pakistan with total reserves estimated at 4.5 billion cubic metres.

"We expect that thanks to the newly discovered deposit we will be able to increase significantly the gas output," Zbigniew Skrzypkiewicz, PGNIG deputy head, was quoted as saying in a statement.

PGNiG has been present in Pakistan since 2005 and plans further exploration works there.
