Description PAK: DAHARKI POWER PROJECT
Objectives and Scope

The Project aims to:

- help to meet a growing energy deficit in Pakistan by adding some 175 MW - or some 12% of the forecasted shortfall in 2007 - of generation capacity;

- higher energy efficiency in Pakistan's electricity generation mix, through the commissioning of a dual cycle, low-BTU gas fired plant with its own assured domestic gas supply; and

- develop the private sector through support to one of the first Independent Power Producers (IPPs) under the recent 2002 Power Policy, which it is hoped to set the precedent for further development of IPPs to provide impetus to the Government of Pakistan's plans for expansion in generation capacity as set out in the country's Medium Term Development Framework.

Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The project is in line with country and sector strategy. It uses indigenous low btu gas to supply power.
Status of Development Objectives

1. Narrowing the Electricity Demand-Supply Gap. Already met. The power deficit Pakistan currently faces is in excess of 5,000MW, keeping in view the high plant availability and dispatch factor, FPCDL has reduced the energy deficit by around 5%.

2. Promoting efficient management of natural resources. Already met. Higher energy efficiency in Pakistan's electricity generation mix, through the commissioning of a combined cycle, low-BTU gas-fired plant with its own assured domestic gas supply. Lower generation cost due to reduced transportation costs because of the plant's proximity to the fuel source.

3. Supporting private sector investment. Already met. Energy sector is vital to the growth of any country and a very high priority for Pakistan. ADB's support to one of the first IPPs under the 2002 Power Policy will promote further private investment to the IPPs and provide impetus to the government's plans for expansion in generation capacity as set out in the country's Medium Term Development Framework.
