The government has decided to halt CNG deliveries to filling stations until February 15th

KARACHI: To satisfy the increased demand of domestic users, the Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) stated on Monday that gas supplies to CNG filling stations will be suspended for two and a half months throughout the winter.

From December 1, 2021, to February 15, 2022, the government has planned to stop supplying gas to all CNG stations in Sindh and Balochistan.

Because of the increase in demand throughout the winter, CNG delivery to all captive power plants of non-export companies was terminated three days ago.

Also read: Sindh CNG stations will be halted for three days due to a gas shortage.

Nevertheless, supply of gas to all the industries, including zero-rated export industries, captive power plants and fertiliser sector would continue, said a spokesperson of the SSGC.

The SSGC spokesperson said the decision was taken to overcome the gap of demand and supply and to fulfill the requirement of domestic consumers.

He said it was imperative to provide additional gas in Balochistan for the protection of human lives as gas worked as a lifeline for them. They have dire need of using different instruments of gas in low temperatures to keep themselves warm, he maintained.
