The terminal is owned by Engro Elengy Terminal Pakistan Ltd (EETPL), a collaboration between Engro Corporation and investment partners World Bank Group and Royal Vopak of the Netherlands. The terminal utilizes Excelerate’s FSRU, the Exquisite, and can deliver up to 690 MMcf/d of natural gas directly into Sui Southern Gas Company’s natural gas pipeline system.
