Abstract : It is a universal phenomenon that the socio-economic progress of a state is significantly dependent upon the performance of the energy sector, as the energy sector drives the engine of growth and development in agricultural, industrial, and defense sectors, in addition to impacting domestic users. In Pakistan, the increasing gap between the demand for, and the supply of, energy has brought economic progress to a standstill. A number of industries have been closed due to this increasing gap, which is expected to grow even further.Despite huge indigenous potential and its geographical significance as a potential energy corridor between the Middle East and Central Asia, Pakistans energy sector fails to secure its energy needs. The goal of this thesis is to evaluate why Pakistans energy crisis is worsening day by day, and how the country can best secure its energy needs.
