Low gas supply paralyzing country's textile sector
Dec '10
A textile exporters' association, while vehemently opposing the 90 percent low pressure in gas supply to textile industries in Faisalabad, has recently said that it was an intentional effort to wreck the export-oriented textile sector.

These low pressure strategies would cause the textile sector to incur a loss of one billion rupees every day in export revenues and value addition in the region. The government should get in touch with all the textile associations in the country to preserve the industry and to formulate a strong strategy for the future.

Pakistan Textile Exporters Association (PTEA), while condemning the gas managers' pretext that cold weather is responsible for low gas pressure, said that the reasons given by these managers are not practical, as right now the weather has not reached the freezing point where gas gets fossilized and also because both the Sui Southern and Sui Northern gas distributor firms have a common sourcing head and that is Sui Gas. Thus, it questioned that with same sourcing head when there is no gas scarcity in the Southern sphere then why it is so in the Northern sphere.

The government has yet not been able to formulate a long term policy and scheme to deal with the situation, which is adversely affecting the production. The textile exporters, in particular, are seen to face many adversities as the circumstances have rendered them incapable to produce and ship the goods within stipulated time.
