Oracle Energy, a UK-based company, has received approval to build a 700 MW coal-fired power plant in Pakistan’s southern Sindh Province, and is to partner with Chinese state-owned companies Sichuan Provincial Investment Group and PowerChina International Group to build it, provided the Chinese companies decide to go ahead. The project will be the first half of a large 1,400 MW project which will power a coal mine in the Thar Desert coal field. Presumably, this will enable more coal to be mined for domestic consumption for residential and industrial use.
