KE allowed to import residual fuel oil
Power generation companies and independent power producers have been allowed to import furnace oil by the government as it attempts to avoid a possible electricity crisis.
The Power Division has, however, told the companies to first use up available supplies of furnace oil.
Karachi Electric has also been allowed to import 50,000 megatons of residual fuel oil.
Major cities in Pakistan have been facing unannounced load-shedding in the last few months.
