Industries to voluntarily discontinue gas usage for 24 hours

Karachi: All industries in Karachi and interior Sindh have voluntarily decided to discontinue gas usage for 24 hours beginning at 7 am on Sunday.

A unanimous decision in this regard was taken in a meeting chaired at the Governor House on December 15 by Governor Sindh Dr. Ishrat-ul-Ibad and attended by SSGC management and office-bearers of majority of trade bodies and associations representing major industrial areas.

The voluntarily closure will help ease gas shortages in the wake of an extraordinarily acute situation, and will help to ensure normal gas pressure and bring back line pack situation to normal levels for the next six days.

SSGC was represented during the meeting by Syed Hassan Nawab, DMD (Operations) and Shoaib Warsi, SGM (Distribution-South).
