It is appearing to be a failed project
Considering it has been running for 22 Years

No water solution
No housing solution
Now, due to revival of corrupt units in Pakistan no Pakistani will bring money to Pakistan

PML is already announcing shutting down some power plants which costed 200 million Dollar to make because they made a wrong choice for fuel source , this after collecting their cut in past dealinsg

When people will invest the OLD goons Establishment will come grab land near water front

Yes the children of corrupt mafia will come build some building and shopping plaza but now they like to own power plants and other utilities sector PIE so their vision has gone up to grow their own empire




Saudia has 10,000 KM shore line like gawadar just a coastal desert area nothing spectacular

Saudi Arabia’s energy minister Khalid Al-Falih arrived in Pakistan over the weekend and has already visited the deep-water port of Gwadar to review the site of the planned oil city.

The visiting Saudi delegation and their hosts discussed plans for signing a number of investment agreements in the coming month, including petrochemical, refining, renewable energy, and mining.

Talking to reporters, Al-Falih said, “Saudi Arabia wants to make Pakistan’s economic development stable through establishing an oil refinery and partnership with Pakistan in the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC)”.

According to the Saudi official, who is also the Chairman of the Board of Saudi Aramco, bilateral relations between Pakistan and Saudi Arabia are very strong, “and Saudi Arabia will play a role in Pakistan’s development and prosperity through investment”.

A high-level delegation from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, led by the Crown Prince, will visit Pakistan in the last week of November. The Crown Prince is in Pakistan at Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif’s invitation. Pakistan made significant efforts to convince the KSA to fulfill the MoUs and invest in Pakistan.

Besides the Saudi oil project, the Ministry of Petroleum is working to improve Pakistan’s refining policy in order to attract investment for the construction of new refineries. Reports suggest the government has decided to offer investors a profit margin of 14-15 percent, as opposed to the earlier offer of 9 percent in the draft for policy refinement prepared by the previous government.

The coalition also wants China to assist in the construction of another refinery on the CPEC strip, and Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif is expected to present relevant plans to Beijing during his upcoming visit to China.
