SNGPL again suspends gas supply to over 600 firms

Jan '11
Regardless of the hue and cry of several industrial firms after the four day gas suspension from January 7, Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Company Limited (SNGPL) has once again taken the same path and has suspended gas supply to over 600 firms for another four days from January 16 onwards.

This year, by January 18 the company had provided gas to the industries for only four days and during those days too the pressure was very less, Choudhry Salamat Ali, Chairman, Pakistan Hosiery Manufacturers and Exporters Association (North Zone) claimed.

Over 600 firms including the sizing, printing, dyeing, chemical producing and textile processing firms are suffering due to this gas suspension as they are forced to remain close due to unavailability of gas and power, and are thus incurring heavy monetary losses.

Further, around 50,000 power looms too have been forced to cease their operations over the last three weeks, which has induced severe financial crisis as no sized yarn is available for them to carry out production. Moreover, the processing firms have also stagnated cloth production process owing to the unavailability of gas and power.

Choudhry informed that the Cabinet Committee and the ECC had resolved to observe only two gas holidays in a week and to provide regular gas supply to the textile industry for rest of the five days, and even the Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani granted his approval to this decision, but then the SNGPL has not adhered to the decision even for a single week.

The official has sounded an apprehension that, if provisions for proper and regular gas supply, reduction in the mark up rate and duty-free market access are not made available, it may ruin the export-oriented and labour-intensive value added textile industry of Punjab. He has thus sought government's intervention in the matter.
