Types of Fuel in Pakistan

Every engine uses a type of fuel specific to its design. Here is a list of petroleum products refined in Pakistan:

• Petrol (Super and Hi-Octane)

• Diesel (High Speed and Low Speed)

• Kerosene

• Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG)

• Compressed Natural Gas (CNG)

Major fuel products in Pakistan are Petrol and High Speed Diesel because of their massive consumption in the country. Hence, these two resources generate most of the revenue for the Pakistani government. 

Petrol Quality in Pakistan

For a long time period of time, Pakistan had a supply of low grade petrol in the country while the rest of the world was using finer quality fuel in their automobiles. Even the most undeveloped countries had better quality fuel supplies than Pakistan. It was the year 2016 when Pakistan started to import better quality petrol with a higher Research Octane Number (RON), 92 to be exact. Today, most oil marketing companies in Pakistan refine RON 95 or 97 petrol.

Hi-Octane Prices

OGRA does not control Hi-Octane petrol prices in Pakistan. Thus, Hi-Octane prices vary across different Petrol Pumps.

Euro Fuel Emission Standards in Pakistan

Pakistan has officially adopted the Euro V emission standards to improve engine performance of our vehicles.This also helps create a greener environment for Pakistan's future generations.

Previously, Pakistan adopted the Euro II Emission Standards back in 2012, when Euro II was already outdated. Now, Pakistan has skipped Euro III and Euro IV to adopt Euro V standards in 2020 which was actually introduced in 2009 in other countries. Currently many countries are following Euro VI Emission Standards since 2014, and would switch to Euro VII which is expected around 2025.

The Frequent Petrol Rate Changes in Pakistan

The Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) controls the petrol rates in Pakistan. OGRA has a practice of revising all fuel prices twice a month. The new prices are announced on the 15th and the last day of each month and usually remain in effect for the next 15 days. Moreover, petrol prices are different in different areas and regions of Pakistan. 

The petroleum prices in Pakistan are directly related to the global transformations of oil and gas. However, they are also affected by many other local factors such as the supply of petroleum resources in the country, economic conditions, political instability, etc. As a result, the public witnesses frequent ups and downs in the fuel prices. 

Highest Petrol Price in Pakistan:

The highest petrol price in Pakistan history is currently Rs 145.82 per litre in November 2021. Though it also occasionally looms around the 140 mark whenever petroleum products are in high demand globally, as is the case these days.
