ISLAMABAD: The Board of Directors of the Oil and Gas Development Company Limited (OGDCL) stated that media reports have recently addressed the issue of circular debt settlement.

They would like to clarify that, as of this date, we have not received any formal communication from the relevant authorities. Thus, any information in circulation about a settlement plan might be speculative. “We encourage stakeholders and the public to rely exclusively on official communications for accurate information.”

KPD-TAY Compression Project: We are delighted to announce the Board’s approval for hiring the EPCC contractor for the KPD-TAY compression project. The completion timeframe of the project is set at 16 months, spanning from the establishment date of foreign supply, letter of credit (LC) to the successful performance testing of all compressor packages.

Indigenization Initiatives: OGDCL is deeply committed to indigenization to bolster self-reliance and fortify our domestic economy using local resources and technologies. Our goals with this initiative are to:

•Minimize imports, conserving foreign reserves and enhancing our trade balance by backing local industries.

•Secure continuous material supply with alternate supply chains for our operations.

•Elevate domestic market competitiveness, ensuring quality products at great prices and opening global export avenues.

•Drive economic growth, spurring production, employment, and local investment.

•Promote knowledge and skill growth, fostering a skilled workforce and boosting our nation’s human capital.

•Align with government policies emphasizing domestic production and investment.

“We extend our gratitude to our shareholders, the Ministry of Energy, the federal government, employees, partners, and the general public for their unwavering trust and support.”

The Board remains steadfast in its commitment to transparency and will continue updating the community.

Why this sudden outburst from OGDC? Wording of formal communication suspect....had they not received any communication formal or otherwise they would have had to say what communication have they received? 2nd og reports to why a media disclosure?...why not a quiet word thru the channel seeking clarity? This reeks of creating panic in the market...same old!
