LAHORE: Due to rising domestic demand, the Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Ltd (SNGPL) has halted gas supplies to captive power plants (CPPs).
According to a press statement published by the business on Wednesday, supply to CPPs was discontinued from 9 p.m. on Wednesday because gas demand in the home sector had grown considerably owing to the extreme cold (Dec 15).
The decision has been taken as per the approved load management programme, it said, to continue uninterrupted gas supply to domestic consumers.
It has, however, requested domestic consumers to use gas only when required and turn to electric heaters and geysers instead of gas-run devices. It also urged the consumers to avoid using compressors to suck in gas as it deprives other users of their rights.
