Sindh CNG stations to remain closed on December 19, 21


KARACHI: The supply of gas will remain suspended in the metropolitan on December 19 and December 21, according to a notification issued by Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) on Monday.

“Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) stations are to remain closed on December 19 and 21 (Wednesday and Friday) for 24 hours,” reads the SSGC notification.

Earlier, the province’s CNG stations had reopened on Saturday after a full week’s closure.

Federal Minister for Petroleum Ghulam Sarwar Khan while speaking to the media said that he had met with all concerned authorities on the matter and gas supply had been restored to Sindh’s CNG sector after he reached an agreement with the CNG association.

He said that the federal government was making its best efforts to guarantee that foolproof and uninterrupted gas supply for the province’s industrial sector, adding that many industries in Punjab had shifted to Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) in order to survive.
