KARACHI: Adhering to the clear instructions from the federal government, SSGC has stopped gas supplies to all industries including their units for power generation, fertilizer sector and CNG stations. This decision has been taken in the backdrop of possible striking of cyclone Biparjoy and considering the shortage of natural gas and RLNG.

The gas supply has been suspended until further notice from 7am today, (Wednesday) morning. In this regard, Sui gas utility had sent notices of gas shutdown to all industrial and CNG associations through e-mail last night. Adhering to the government’s directives in view of this cyclone, maximum gas will be given to the power sector to ensure power supply to consumers. The SSGC is ensuring enough supply of both indigenous gas and RLNG to K-Electric to meet its operational requirements.—PR
