    TEHRAN (Shana) -- Energy security has always been an especially sensitive issue in the economic policies of various governments of Pakistan. Although Pakistan’s economy mainly depends on agriculture which makes up about 33% of the country’s gross national product (GNP), over recent years, the growth of energy consumption in the domestic, industrial and transportation sectors has made Islamabad more dependent on gas imports to the extent that gas has become a key element of Pakistan’s energy mix. However, despite the advantages that gas has over other fossil fuels, it also has problems, one of which is the high cost and security sensitivities of its transmission. This problem is especially noticeable in a country like Pakistan because due to insecurity mainly in Pakistan's Baluchistan, the central government does not have much control over its security.
