Pak defers gas supply to Punjab textile industry

13
Jan '12
The three days a week gas supply that was to be restored from January 11, 2012 onwards to textile industries in Pakistan's Punjab would now be restored from January 16, 2012, Federal Petroleum Minister Dr. Asim Hussain assured All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA).

APTMA has strongly criticised Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL) for its failure in honouring its obligation of restoring supply from January 11. It stated that this has unnerved not only the textile industry at large, but even the industrial workers.

APTMA cautioned that if the issue is not resolved at the earliest, it is likely to result in large-scale redundancy in the country's textile industry.

The Association stated that the gas outages have caused the textile industry to lose around US$ 2 billion in exports so far, and it is likely to lose other US$ 2 billion, if the suspension goes on for another one month.

However, APTMA expressed hope that there would not be any further delay in resumption of gas supply to Punjab textile industries, which will allow these industries to carry on their operations and safeguard millions of jobs.
