LAHORE: The restoration of regasified liquefied natural gas (RLNG) supply to the textile industry’s captive power plants (CPPs) may take around a week as issues related to berthing of an LNG cargo ship and gas shortage were causing hurdles, Dawn learnt on Saturday.

Meanwhile, textile expo­rters have urged the government to immediately restore the RLNG supplies to their CPPs in a bid to avert any delay in meeting the $20 billion export target for the ongoing fiscal year ending June 30.

“The RLNG supplies restoration to CCPs cannot be done in a day or two, as it may take around a week. The issue is the berthing of PLL’s LNG cargo at Karachi port. Moreover, the continuous retention of around 100 mmcfd of Sui SNGPL gas by the SSGCL and utilisation of about 825mmcfd by the power sector is causing a shortage of the gas faced by the SNGPL,” an official source explained to Dawn.
