On January 5th, TharPak, LLC met with officials of the Embassy of Pakistan in Washington DC to introduce and announce the formation of the TharPak Consortium (TharPak), which was created by a group of leading multi-national firms, joining forces to develop a Mega Energy Complex (MEC) in the Thar dessert of southeastern Pakistan (Sindh Province) based on the abundant lignite deposits located there. As a result of exploratory drilling over an area of
approximately 9000 sq. km, a total of 175 billion tonnes of coal resource potential has been assessed by the Pakistan Geological Survey (PGS). The consortium plans to tap into a portion of that vast resource and put it to use for the benefit of Pakistan.
