Pakistan Projects Stopped Due to Dollar Shortage in 2023

Lack of US dollars has prevented Pakistan Refinery Limited (PRL) from paying Wood Group UK Limited on time, which has halted the expansion project (Wood).

The refinery expansion and upgrade project (REUP) for which Wood was to receive $25 million, was meant to be funded by a national daily but the payment could not be completed for several months due to a paucity of currency in the nation.

After the local business deposits the money in the bank, the contract is registered with the central bank for payment to a foreign company and the payment is now made through the central bank.

Dollar shortfall is to blame for the UK contractor’s front-end engineering design (FEED) payment delay. The payment delay to PRL’s UK contractor has also been verified by management. According to PRL’s CEO Zahid Mir, there is a delay in contract payment, which he verified to a national daily.

By lowering imports, the project would also benefit the nation’s balance of payments. The capacity of PRL’s refinery will be improved from hydro skimming to deep conversion, and its daily capacity for processing oil will increase from 50,000 to 100,000 barrels.
