KARACHI: As the government is planning to bring down power tariff for industrial consumers to nine cents per kWh , the Sui Southern Gas Company Ltd (SSGCL) has announce that it would keep gas supplies to all the industries including their power generation units and all CNG stations in Sindh suspended for 48 hours starting from 8am on Jan 27.

SSGCL said the availability of gas has decreased due to shortage of gas supplies in the system, resulting in dep­le­tion of line packs, causing low pressure in the system.

The company had initiated 48 hours gas suspension from the last week of December 2023.
