KARACHI - The SSGC management has decided to shut down gas supplies to the CNG stations in its franchise areas of Sindh and Balochistan for two days in a week in order to cope with the increasing gas demand due to the onset of winter loads on the system, says a press release. This shall, however, not apply on the CNG stations that have a valid restraining order from the Sindh High Court. SSGC is committed towards ensuring uninterrupted gas supply to all its customers. The Company was, however, compelled to take this decision in view of the cold weather especially in the northern part of its franchise areas, which increases gas consumption manifolds thereby resulting in further gas shortage. The SSGC management has appealed to all its customers to voluntarily reduce their gas consumption in order to bridge the natural gas demand-supply equilibrium. A committee under the supervision of Zuhair Siddiqui, SGM (Customer and Engineering Services) and comprising of Faiyaz Merchant, GM (Sales) and Salahuddin Ahmed, DCE (Sales) has been formed to respond to the customers queries related to gas supply.
