ISLAMABAD: The Ministry of Maritime Affairs on Thursday submitted the Inter-Ministerial Committee’s report on the establishment of new liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminals to the Cabinet Committee on Energy (CCoE).

The ministry informed the cabinet committee that a large number of issues have been addressed after extensive consultations which required inter-departmental and inter-ministerial consensus.
