SNGPL gas suspension compels 600 units to close

12
Jan '11
As the Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL) had announced gas suspension that commenced from January 7, this had compelled over 600 industrial firms in Faisalabad to cease their operations for 84 hours since then. Various sizing, printing, dyeing, textile processing and finishing firms have been included in these 600 firms.

The gas shutdown has also caused over 380 CNG stations to remain closed for two days, while it is for the third consecutive week that around 1,00,000 powerlooms have been required to cease their operations for the reason that the sizing industry is not being able to provide sized yarns to these powerlooms regularly.

Over and above this, the 10 to 12 hour power load-shedding in the industrial regions is also adding to the trouble of these industrial units and has also added to the woes of around 4,00,000 workers majority of them being daily wage workers, who have no other source of livelihood.

Salamat Ali, Chairman, Pakistan Hosiery Manufacturers & Exporters Association (PHMA) North Zone recently made a press statement whereby he stated that, this gas suspension schedule would intensely add to the woes of the already ailing industrial sector which is confronted with issues like severe dearth of electricity and worsening law and order situation.
