The Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) on Sunday announced that industrial areas in Sindh and Balochistan will observe a one-day closure on a rotational basis.
According to a notification issued in this regard, the process will ensure better system pressures for other sectors.
The notification added that the decision has been taken because of the widening demand-supply gap and reduced RLNG retention that have affected all gas-consuming sectors.
It said that all industrial bodies, including export units, have agreed with the SSGC that a one-day planned industrial closure will be observed on a rotational basis by each industrial area for a period of one month, effective from today (December 26) till January 25, 2022.
The statement further added that industrial areas are expected to positively follow a specially laid down schedule for maintaining adequate pressure to all the sectors.
