Karachi (21.07.2012): Mr. Muhammad Irfan Moton, Chairman, S.I.T.E. Association of Industry has expressed much concern on low gas pressure in SITE Area by the Sui Southern Gas Company Limited. About 25-30 percent of industrial units have gone out of production in the SITE industrial area due to anomalous gas pressure, industrialists are complaining of low gas pressure for last two days. He said in a press statement that the industrial production stopped yesterday after gas pressure dropped abruptly, several captive power generating units also stopped operating because of the non sufficient supply of gas to the biggest and oldest industrial area of the country. He further said that this problem is being faced only by the industrialists of SITE Area whereas the other industrial area of Karachi do not face this problem which means that discriminatory attitude is being made by SSGCL with SITE Area which should be taken by the authorities.
The present supplies of low pressure gas, industries have been put under constraint to meet out their targets which will put export oriented industries in a very awkward position.
Chairman S.I.T.E. Association demanded Managing Director, SSGCL to take the necessary steps for improvement of the gas pressure in the biggest industrial estate of the country on warfooting basis.
