KARACHI: Rejecting the KE’s gas shortage claim, the Sui Southern Gas Company said on Tuesday it was currently supplying the allocated 35 million cubic feet per day Regasified Liquefied Natural Gas (RLNG) to the power utility in accordance with an agreement.
The supply was made on the premise that the power utility had more than sufficient stock of furnace oil, a statement of gas company said.
The statement came after a KE spokesperson had said that the present supply of gas would hamper its ability to produce cheaper electricity.
The KE’s inability to produce cheaper electricity could not be attributed to the SSGC, it said. “Blaming the SSGC for gas shortage is highly contradictory on KE’s part.”
