SNGPL not toeing Presidential directions on gas supply to textile industry

Apr '11
Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Ltd (SNGPL) has once again defied the orders of The President of Pakistan. MD SNGPL had assured The President of Pakistan that Industry will be supplied GAS for 5 days a week from March onwards. Poor management by SNGPL has resulted in a loss of US$ 1 Billion potential exports and redered millions of workers jobless.

All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) lamented that SNGPL was adamant on destroying the Textile Industry by curtailing GAS supply again and again without any reason. APTMA spokesman said that SNGPL first flouted the decision of ECC for 5 days GAS supply to Textile Industry and then again disregarded the Instruction of The Prime Minister of Pakistan to implement the ECC decision.

Subsequently The President of Pakistan taking notice of serious mismanagement called a meeting of Industry stakeholders where MD SNGPL assured the President of 5 days GAS supply to Industry. However, all such tall claims proved wrong as the SNGPL has slashed gas supply frequency to 3.5 days a week.

Presidency once again taking notice of the situation, called MD SNGPL and directed him to ensure gas supply to the textile industry on priority in line with 5/2 days supply formula. But in spite of above highest level instructions, said APTMA spokesman, the MD SNGPL has recently submitted a proposal for providing 3 days gas supply while putting it off for 4 days in a week for textile Industry. It is pertinent to note that SNGPL has 10% line losses which is equal 200 MMCFD, again a sign of gross mismanagement.

SNGPL is giving GAS to IPPs originally sanctioned in 2005 and now have come into production after 6 years for a period of 90 days, which have no contract after 30th June 2011. SNGPL is also supplying additional 80 MMCFD GAS to Fertilizer Plants from its network which was supposed to be provided from Quadir Pur Gas Field, a source of over 500 MMCFD.

The APTMA spokesman has urged the government to intervene and ensure uninterrupted gas supply, enabling the industry in meeting record target of $14 billion export this year.
