Background

In July 2014 Fauji Fertilizer Bin Qasim Limited (FFBL) was granted environmental clearance to convert its gas plant to coal. FFBL plans to generate 120MW, primarily for fertilizer production.[1]

In November 2014, FFBL management said that the company is most likely going forward with the project. The project will reduce the amount of gas used by the company as fuel stock.[2] In September 2014, Fauji Fertilizer hired National Engineering Services Pakistan Ltd as design & construction contractor for the project.[3] Fauji achieved financial close on the project in December 2015.[4][5]

The plant was brought online in February 2017.[6]
