Sui Southern Gas Company makes major recoveries against defaulters

Islamabad: On special directives of Dr. Asim Hussain, Federal Minister for Petroleum and Natural Resources, SSGC has successfully launched an aggressive campaign to recover outstanding dues from the defaulters and miscreants involved in gas thefts.

As part of a forceful recovery campaign being implemented in its franchise areas of Sindh and Balochistan, SSGC teams carried out disconnections in May and June 2011 for non-payment of gas bills and gas thefts and in process recovered Rs. 252 million from the domestic customers and Rs. 755 million from industrial and commercial customers during these two months. All such defaulting customers were duly notified prior to disconnections.

The current recovery campaign is one of the many strategies being formulated by the Ministry of Petroleum to reinvigorate public utilities along efficient lines and bring back financial discipline in their operations.

SSGC will continue with its recovery drive with added gusto in the coming months too.
