ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Ministry of Energy (Petroleum Division) has said that there is no planned gas load shedding for the Domestic, Commercial or Industrial Sector anywhere in the Country.
However, isolated complaints of pressure drops are being reported especially at tail ends due to severe cold weather, are being attended by gas utilities actively.
With reference to a press report which states, one Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Cargo that was scheduled to arrive on December 18 has delayed at the loading port & is now scheduled to arrive today (Monday).
This will allow both Sui Companies to enhance LNG Supplies from tomorrow which is expected to improve the system pressure.
Moreover, the City gate loads in the SNGPL system have increased nine percent in one week as severe winter sets in; the SSGC is facing a similar increase in pressure drops in parts of Karachi and Quetta.
Both gas utilities are striving to maintain the gas supply to 10 million households across the Country.
However, illegal use of gas compressors has led to low gas pressure problems in some areas, which is being curbed by the Sui Companies.
The public is requested to use gas responsibly and report any domestic consumers using compressors, an illegal act, which is another major reason for pressure drops.
