KARACHI: The K-Electric said on Monday that it was currently facing an acute shortage of gas supply and receiving only 35mmcfd gas.

A KE spokesperson said chronic gas shortage was hampering the company’s ability to produce “cheaper” electricity that might adversely impact the consumers.

He said KE was providing uninterrupted power supply to the city by generating electricity through alternate fuels under the Economic Merit Order.

He requested the Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) to immediately restore the gas supply.
