SSGC suspends gas supply to industries


Islamabad: Owing to the widening gap between gas supply and demand, the Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) on Thursday announced its decision to suspend supplies to captive power plants and industries. The gas utility said that the decision has been taken considering the low supply of gas. It stated that due to a reduction in supply, the volume of gas in pipelines has decreased. The SSGC said that the gas supply would be restored to captive power plants and industries from 8am tomorrow (Friday). Since last week, scores of residents have been protesting against the suspension of the gas supply. News Desk
