SSGC to suspend gas supply to non-export industries from Dec 11

KARACHI: The Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) on Friday announced that the gas supply to the non-export industries of Sindh and Balochistan will be suspended from December 11 (Saturday) to ensure supply to domestic consumers.

A statement issued by the SSGC spokesperson stated that the decision has been made in line with the gas load management plan approved by the Ministry of Energy (Petroleum Division).

Domestic consumers are a priority under the plan.

“The decision to discontinue the supply to non-export industries has been made to fulfil the requirement of domestic consumers [especially in Balochistan which is facing extremely cold weather],” the statement read.

The supply will remain suspended to the general industries till further orders. However, the supply to the zero-rated export industries including the captive power plants and fertilizer sector would continue, it added.

The statement further stated that it is pertinent to mention that provision of additional gas supply to Balochistan is essential for human survival in the province due to extreme weather conditions during the winter season.

“The SSGC expects cooperation from the non-export industries in ensuring the uninterrupted gas supply to the domestic consumers”, it added.
