Adviser to Prime Minister of Pakistan for Commerce and Investment Abdul Razak Dawood has warned of gas crisis during the winter season.

According to the details, the Commerce Adviser while taking to his official Twitter handle, wrote that:

“We are now heading into the winter & there may be gas shortages.”

He said that there will be no outages in supply for the Export industry.

“The Government has decided that for Export-Oriented Industry, there will be no outages of gas supply.”

Commerce Adviser continued that the Ministry of Commerce should be taken into confidence in case of any complaints.

“However, if such outages do occur, please let the MOC know so that it can be brought to the attention the concerned Ministry to take corrective action.”

Earlier a spokesman for the Sui Southern Gas Company (SSG) said the gas crisis would be further complicated in the winter.

A spokesman for Sui Southern Gas Company said that all stakeholders, including K-Electric, have been notified about the issue.

He said that Sui Gas in Sindh would face a shortfall of 300 million cubic feet per day MMCFD.

A spokesman for Sui Southern said that there was a reduction in gas pressure from the gas field and the SSGC had a shortfall of 150 MMCFD. The shortfall has affected the condition of the line pack (volume of gas that can be “stored” in a gas pipeline.)

An SSG spokesman said the amount of gas from other gas fields was also declining. The Sinjhoro and Zarghun gas fields are closed due to annual maintenance.
