APTPMA gives 48 hours ultimatum to resolve gas crisis

A 48 hours ultimatum has been given by the value-added textile sector to solve the problem of gas crisis. They have threatened to completely shut down the industry which would render millions of workers unemployed. This was announced by the All Pakistan Textile Processing Mills Association (APTPMA).

APTPMA's decision to shut down the industry, in case the government fails to resolve the gas crisis and resume the supply of gas to various textile processing and sizing mills within 48 hours, has been fully supported by leaders and representatives of other associations like Faisalabad Chamber of Commerce & Industry (FCCI), Pakistan Textile Exporters Association (PTEA), All-Pakistan Sizing Association (APSA), Pakistan Hosiery Mills Association (PHMA).

The Sui Northern Company has served a schedule of the gas supply cut offs under which the supply of gas to factories across the value-added textile chain, which includes textile processing, printing as well as sizing mills, is likely to remain suspended for a period of six days. The gas supply would be restored only on 4th November.

This extended gas supply cut offs has been undertaken on the plea that the Zamzama gasfield turnaround is likely to be closed for 65 days. It is practically not possible to operate these factories on any other fuel. Earlier also, the Sui Northern Company had closed the Qadir Pur gasfield turnaround. The gas supply to the industry was started again only after the intervention of the Prime Minister, Mr. Yousaf Raza Gilani. The Sui Northern Company could have completed the turnaround during the following Eid holidays without hampering the gas supply to the value-added textile sector.
