Gas crisis thumps Pak textile sector
Dec '10
Gas shortage is likely to lay an adverse impact on textile exports across the entire textile value chain, which is already declining due to a number of reasons like enormous hike in the prices of raw materials including cost of energy and borrowing rates, and several other adversities like policy issues.

Official reports reveal that, the challenges that the sector is confronting over a period of last two and half years have lead to a massive 50 percent fall in the sector's exports. Again it has to be noted that, the government has framed a revised a gas load shedding plan for the entire country, according to which the industrial sector would have breaks in gas supply for two to three days in a week, while CNG stations would have a break for two days every week.

The revised plan would be in effect till March 15, 2011. According to the MMCFD, as against the country's overall gas production of four billion cubic feet a day, the daily gas deficit is expected to remain within the range of 568 to 917 million cubic feet per day. The government is to submit the revised plan to the Economic Co-ordination Committee (ECC) for sanction during its meeting on December 7.
