A mega oil city is being constructed in Gwadar under China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
Director General GDA Dr. Sajjad Baloch told that an area of 80,000 acres of land is being used for this purpose and will cost around Rs. 10 billion.
This mega oil city will be used for transportation of imported oil through the Gwadar Port to China.
The oil will be imported from the Gulf states and will be stored at this proposed megacity. It will shorten the Chinese travel distance from forty days to seven days from Gwadar to the Chinese border.
Earlier, that route of import through western China took double the distance. The PC-I of the project has been sent to the Federal Ministry of Petroleum for approval.
The oil city will be used for storing oil for its onward transportation to China.
