KARACHI: While continuously facing a gas shortage in the system, Sui Southern Gas Company Ltd (SSGCL) on Friday announced a supply suspension for 48 hours for industries starting from Jan 6 (8:00 am) to Jan 8.

SSGCL said the availability of gas has decreased, resulting in the depletion of line packs, causing low pressures in the system.

All industries including their power generation units and all CNG stations in Sindh (including those being operated on RLNG) will remain closed for 48 hours, according to a press release issued by the SSGC.

SSGCL said it would take strict action against any industry found violating this gas holiday period and subsequently their gas supplies will be disconnected for at least seven days.
