ISLAMABAD The United States and consortium of international financial institutions (IFIs) are likely to allocate $2.33 billion for Pakistan to overcome energy crisis as against the demand of $5.684 billion for 19 energy projects, documents available with TheNation revealed. Informed sources revealed that US was trying to divert Pakistans attention from Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline deal and in this regard it had asked the IFIs to help Pakistan overcome energy shortage. Pakistan had presented the estimated cost of 19 energy projects, $5,684 billion, in Pak-America Strategic Dialogue in Washington in March 25, 2010. However, according to the available documents, US and IFIs are now considering to allocate only $2.33 billion. According to the documents, out of the abovementioned 19 projects, US may provide $1.14 billion for all 19 projects while a consortium of IFIs including World Bank, Asian Development Bank (ADB) and Islamic Development Bank (IDB) has also agreed to extend $ 1.2 billion loan for only 9 energy projects. Pakistan needs financial support in projects including; 740 MW Munda Dam, Kurram Tangi Dam, 100 MW Sindh Province Wind Farm, Gomal Zam Dam, Satpara Dam, Naptha Fuel Plant Conversions, Kunhar Pusakhi Nat Gas Processing Plant, Cavelier Energy Corp LNG Terminal, Natural Gas Production Enhancement and Efficiency Project (NGEEP), Warsak Dam Hydro Electric Power Project, Mangla Hydroelectric Power Station Rehabilitation, Suki Kinari Hydropower Project, Qadirpur Nat Gas Field, Lower Spat Gah Hydropower Project, Bagasse-based cogeneration at sugar mills, Tank Zam Dam, Mansehra Transmission, Chakwal Transmission, and Neelum Jhelum to Rawat/Gujanuna Transmission. US will also provide assistance for these projects. According to the documents, Pakistan was considering to get $1,400 million for Suki Kinari Hydropower Project. However, US is likely to provide only $ 150 million and IFIs are considering to provide only $ 300 million. Similarly, Pakistan believes to receive a loan worth $ 300 million for 83 MW Kuram Tangi Dam located in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa from US and IFIs but both are interested to provide only $ 180 million. Pakistan hopes to secure $240 million loan for 100 MW Sindh Province Wind Farm but US has shown concerns to pay only $25 million and IFIs are interested to provide only $ 50 million. Furthermore, Pakistan was hopeful to secure $ 300 million for Warsak Dam Hydro Electric Power Project located in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa but it may get only $90 million from both financers. Likewise Pakistan needs $500 million for Mangla Hydroelectric power Station Rehabilitation Project but US has indicated to provide only $ 60 million and IFIs are likely to give only $ 120 million. Pakistan has estimated $614 million for Lower Spat Gah Hydropower Project but only $ 90 million is likely to be given. Again, Neelam Jhelum to Rawat/Gujanuna Transmission requires $225 million but US is willing to provide only $50 million and IFIs will give only $30 million to end energy crisis in the country.
