Karachi (PR): Reduction in supply of natural gas from the producers due to technical and operational reasons has persistently resulted in creating a low pressure situation which has adversely affected the overall supply in SSGC’s franchise areas of Sindh and Balochistan. Keeping in view the gravity of the situation, SSGC is regularly practicing one day gas shutdown every Sunday for all industrial and captive power customers in Sindh.
The gas supply for all Industrial units and Captive Power plants in Sindh will remain closed for a 24-hour period starting from 7:00 am on Sunday 07 October to 7:00 am on Monday 08 October 2012. SSGC’s surveillance teams who are responsible for ensuring strict compliance of the shut down schedule, have also been fully authorized to disconnect gas supply for 48 hours of any customer found violating the above mentioned schedule.
SSGC’s management appreciates the cooperation extended by the industrial and power sector customers in the past and remains confident that this closure will enable supply of gas to stabilize pressure during the coming week.
