Sri Lanka eyeing LNG from Qatar to fuel power plants

DOHA: Sri Lanka has voiced keenness on importing liquefied natural gas (LNG) from Qatar, the world’s biggest exporter of LNG, as part of the government policy to shift to clean energy.

“In our energy sector, LNG-generated power plants are going to be the next futuristic power generation option. In order to bridge the gap of our energy supplies, we want to move away from coal to LNG. There is a high priority being given to that,” Sri Lankan Minister of City Planning and Water Supply Rauff Hakeem said.
