APTPMA seeks fair distribution of gas for textile sector

The All Pakistan Textile Processing Mills Association (APTPMA) Regional Chairman Rizwan Ashraf has sought judicious distribution of gas among industries across Pakistan from the newly discovered Latif Gas Field.
 
According to a statement issued by APTPMA, Mr. Rizwan Ashraf said that Pakistan has been struggling to cope with energy crisis for the last many years and conditions have worsened with a widening gap between demand and supply of electricity and gas, reports The Express Tribune.
 
Welcoming the additional supply of 40 million cubic feet of gas per day from the Latif Gas Field, Mr. Ashraf said the Federal Minister for Petroleum should formulate a new strategy for fair and judicious distribution of new gas finds across the country.
 
The Regional Chairman suggested that increase in the gas quota of Punjab, especially of Faisalabad, would help industries to come out of the prolonged crisis and play their role in stabilizing the economy of the country.
 
Gas is a precious national asset and should be distributed in accordance with industrial needs of all provinces, he added.
 
Further, Mr. Ashraf stated that Punjab is a major consumption centre of gas, as most of the value-added textile processing industries are housed in the city, and the textiles sector is contributing substantially towards the national economy by earning precious foreign exchange for the country in addition to providing much needed jobs to the unemployed youth. 
 
The industrial activities are at its lowest ebb due to the acute shortage of gas, and the present Government should make serious efforts to overcome the energy crisis in the country and restore normal production activities in the industrial sector, he added
