LAHORE - The current cold wave across the country has resulted in a sharp increase in the domestic sectors gas consumption for water heating and space heating. The domestic sectors gas consumption is estimated to have more than doubled, as compared to consumption during summer months, resulting in a widening gap between demand and supply, says a Press release. Our system pack has reached its lowest critical level, whereas it has to be maintained at a certain level for the smooth and efficient operation of our Compressor Units and for ensuring a continuous gas supply to all the consumption centers on our system including tail-end cities of Gujrat, Kharian, Lala Musa and Jehlum etc. Under the circumstances, we have been left with no other option but to suspend the gas supply of a major industrial sector on our system. It is an interim arrangement to build sufficient pack to ensure uninterrupted gas supply to the domestic consumers on our system. The situation is being monitored on a daily basis and as soon as our Transmission System stabilizes, curtailment in the industrial sector shall be accordingly reduced.
