Pak restores gas supply to Punjab textile industries

Textile industries in Pakistan's Punjab are heaving a sigh of relief as gas supply to these industries has been restored.

In addition, the Ministry of Petroleum has appointed APTMA Group Leader Gohar Ejaz as head of the 'Load Management Committee', which has been directed to arrive at a final decision at the earliest on the issue of import of LNG.

APTMA Punjab said Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL) has been directed to provide gas to textile industries in the State. It supplied gas for two days a week during last week, and would resume three day per week gas supply, on rotation basis from this week onwards.

Earlier APTMA notified the Petroleum Minister that gas suspension for 175 days during last year caused the textile industry to lose US$ 2 billion in exports, and this is likely to double this year if gas suspension continues.

The Association also criticized SNGPL's apathetic attitude towards textile sector, as it suspended gas supply to the industry for indefinite period since December 25, 2011.

A team of APTMA representatives met Federal Minister Dr. Asim Hussain and apprised him of the situation saying they were left with no option but to protest and organize a historic march of textile workers a day before the gas supply was restored.

The APTMA team was informed that a provision for an extra 50 MMCFD gas from Kunar Poshaki gas field has been made to enhance the capacity of the system, which would facilitate restoration of gas supply.

It was also stated that other 200 MMCFD would enter the system by end of first half of the year, and this enhanced supply would also be diverted to the textile industry.

Hailing the efforts of the Government, the APTMA delegation ensured that with restoration of gas supply, the industry would put in all its efforts to achieve the export target.
