Sindh is suspected to witness another shortfall. Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) informed that they wouldn’t be able to provide CNG to the stations in the province.
The company on Friday told the media that they’re already facing a shortage of supply. Safdar Hussain from SSGC explained that shortage of the supply is from different fields and the shortfall will not be able to offer CNG for the public.
Therefore Sui Southern Gas Company suggests using other sources of energy for their vehicles.
Safar Hussain also added,
We have not yet announced any suspension of the supply during the winter
But it’s true that there is a load management plan under which CNG stations are on last priority. The company is more focused on supply to domestic users who every year face shortages.
In the cold and chilly areas of Balochistan, the situation turns more complicated. The gas supply in these areas is kind of a lifeline. So we have requested the CNG stations to operate their business on LNG and for that, we will provide them every possible support
According to the officials from SSGC, he areas with low supply include; Quetta, Sujawal, Dadu, Zarghun, Qadirpur, and some other areas.
It is also informed by resources that the circular debt in the gas sector had increased to PKR 250 billion. This is due to the lack of responsibility from relevant authorities in the Sindh division.
