KARACHI: SSGC organized a briefing in its head office to explain to the media about the natural gas load management plan it is implementing during the current winter season, says a press release.

The SSGC officials said they always work towards ensuring uninterrupted gas supply to their customers. However, there is a major gap between demand and supply that needs to be managed by load management.

They explained that rapid depletion of natural resources in the recent years has contributed primarily to a shortfall of 200 to 250 mmcfd gas especially since the domestic sales have seen an increase of 50pc every year.

They said record-breaking winter spell in both Sindh and Balochistan placed severe pressure on the SSGC system that deteriorated the supply situation.

The SSGC management informed the media persons that hopefully as mercury would rise in the next couple of weeks, there would be more induction of local gas.
