Due to a critical shortage of natural gas in Karachi, the Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) has made the tough decision to halt gas supply to CNG stations for a duration of 72 hours, and to industries for 48 hours.

As per the SSGC spokesperson, gas supply to all CNG stations within Sindh province, including RLNG pumps, will be suspended for 72 hours starting from 8:00 AM on Saturday, August 26, until 8:00 AM on Monday, August 28. This measure is aimed at ensuring the general public’s gas needs are met during this period.

In addition to this, gas supply to all general industries will also be temporarily ceased for the next 48 hours, starting from 8:00 AM on August 26. While the exact cause for this gas shutdown hasn’t been disclosed by the company, the prevailing gas shortage is the most likely reason.

On a related note, Pakistan and Turkmenistan recently joined forces to expedite progress on the TAPI gas pipeline project. This development was the outcome of a meeting between Turkmenistan’s Ambassador, Atadjan Movlamov, and Pakistan’s Interim Federal Minister for Energy, Muhammad Ali.

The minister emphasized the vital role of gas in Pakistan’s economy and stressed the need for assertive approaches in addressing the country’s escalating energy demands.
