Sui Southern Gas Company Limited has shut down all Compressed Natural Gas stations in Sindh for three days due to the depletion of gas reserves.
A spokesperson told the media that CNG stations across Sindh have been ordered to stay closed for 72 hours between 8 am on April 15, Friday, and 8 am on April 18, Monday. He added that the company will also cut off gas supply to all general industrial plants for 24 hours starting from 8 am on Sunday.
He highlighted the shutdown is a part of the SSGCL’s gas load management program. The company sent an official notice as follows.”
Keeping in view the short supply of gas in SSGCL system, the availability of gas has decreased resulting in depletion of line pack/low pressure in the system. In compliance with sectoral priority order in force for gas load management, all CNG Stations in Sindh (including those being operating on RLNG), will remain closed.
The last closure announcement from SGL Corporation came just over a week ago on April 8, 2022. With the ongoing gas shortfall around the world despite the conclusion of the winter season, the well-being of several industries is in jeopardy.
