Gas supplies to be suspended for a day each week

The gas utility supplier in Pakistan has decided to suspend gas supplies for a day each week in a rotational manner in each of the zones, beginning from April 6. In the first phase, gas supplies to Lahore Zone - 2 will be suspended for a day.

This decision has been taken by the Sui Northern Gas Pipeline Company Limited (SNGPL) purportedly to reduce gas load on domestic consumers and also provide uninterrupted supply to thermal power stations, which are running short of furnace oil.

Mr Gohar Ejaz, Chairman of the All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) Punjab unit said that the utility agency has decided to suspend supply of gas to the industrial sector, which includes the textile and other industries.

He added by saying that this decision of SNGPL would bring huge losses to the organized textile sector, like spinning and weaving, which depends on gas. The production losses per day could add up to Rs two billion, he noted by saying.
