LPG-Air Mix plants being installed in Balochistan to provide gas to far flung areas

Karachi, November 30, 2017 (PPI-OT):Madni Siddiqui, Provincial Head, Balochistan Region, SSGC has said that the Company is following the Government of Pakistan’s directives of installing around 30 LPG-Air Mix plants in the far flung areas of Sindh and Balochistan. Mr. Siddiqui explained that for ensuring gas to those areas that are far off from SSGC’s distribution grid, already three LPG-Air Mix or Synthetic Natural Gas (SNG) plants are currently operational in Gwadar, Noshki and Surab in Balochistan and work on two more plants in Awaran and Bela is nearly completion.

Mr. Siddiqui said this while walking to the media persons at a dinner hosted in honour of the media fraternity of Balochistan region at Serena Hotel, Quetta. The dinner was part of SSGC’s Winter Safety Awareness Campaign launched every winter to propagate messages to the general public about safe use of gas and menace of gas theft.

The Company’s provincial head said that providing gas to the entire Balochistan is among the top priorities of SSGC. He further added that so far 14 districts of the province have been provided natural gas and work is in full throttle to distribute it to other districts too. Mr. Siddiqui assured the audience that if Company’s employees are caught stealing gas they will not be spared and law will take its course on them.

On the subject of Winter Safety Awareness campaign that stresses on safe use of gas-fired appliances, Mr. Siddiqui said that before this yearly Campaign intensified, on average 20 deaths used to be recorded in Balochistan region during winter times. Now primarily due to this mass campaign, the number of fatalities has been reduced to five on average, he said. He added that SSGC will not rest till the number of fatalities comes to zero.

Shahbaz Islam, Head of Corporate Communications, SSGC reiterated that while the Company is running a campaign to rein in gas thieves, true success will come when the media, clerics, general public and other stakeholders whole heartedly start supporting the gas utility in its mission. Mr. Islam said that gas is Pakistan’s lifeline and it is incumbent on every citizen of the country to play his role in saving it for the future generations.

In his speech, Mr. Raza-ur-Rehman, President, Quetta Press Club said that still a lot of places in Balochistan have not yet got the facility of natural gas with the result that a sense of deprivation has been created among the people of the province. He hoped that SSGC would continue to focus on providing gas to a maximum number of areas in the province. Mr. Rehman asked the SSGC management to look into the issue of wrong billing in Balochistan.

Khalid Ahmed, President Balochistan Union of Journalists expressed his happiness at the fact that the number of deaths and injuries from callous use of gas-fired appliances have dipped sharply and credited SSGC for this positive development. He hoped that SSGC will continue to give priority to far flung areas of Balochistan by providing them with natural gas.

In their speeches, local clerics including Maulana Anwar-ul-Haq Haqqani and Professor Arshad Rashid stressed that gas is not just a rare natural resource but inarguably the best and most affordable fuel and as conscientious citizens we must do everything we can do to use it responsibly and ethically.

Sui Southern Gas Company Limited kicks off its winter campaign with a session with clerics

arachi, November 28, 2017 (PPI-OT):Every year SSGC embarks full throttle on ‘Winter Safety Campaign’ to create basic awareness in careful use of gas-fired appliances especially gas heaters with a focus to eliminate situations that lead to loss of precious human lives. The Company’s team communicates formally with various stakeholders including clerics and media persons so that as opinion makers, they can convey these messages to their target audience.

Like in the past, the Company formally launched the Campaign on November 28 from Quetta Press Club with a symposium attended by a large number of local ulemas. The main thrust of the event was to reiterate the need to create awareness among the clerics about safe use of gas-fired appliances especially during the winters as well as the menace of natural gas theft.

The event was organized by SSGC’s Corporate Communication Department in conjunction with the Company’s Distribution Department in Quetta. The clerics who participated in the program included Maulana Abdul Rahim Hai, Maulana Syed Habibullah Shah Chishti, Taj Agha of Anjuman Tajaran-e-Quetta, Hafiz Mazhar Liaqat, Maulana Dr. Ata-ur-Rehman, Maulana Anwar-ul-Haq Haqqani, Maulana Mukhtar Ahmed, Maulana Abdul Rahman, Mufti Ahmed Khan and Maulana Ahmed Raza Qambrani and Abdul Qayum Kakar.

SSGC was represented by Saeed Larik, ASGM (Distribution-South), Madni Siddiqui, DGM/Incharge (Distribution Quetta Region), Shahbaz Islam, AGM (Corporate Communications), Mohammad Ali Gohar, Chief Manager (Media Relations), Safdar Hussain, Dy. Manager (Media Relations), Shamshullah Kakar, CM (Customer Relations-Quetta), Amir Dutani, CM (HSE) and Shehzad Alam, Chief Engineer.

In his address to the ulemas, ASGM (Distribution-South) stressed that natural gas theft is a serious issue in Balochistan especially during winters when consumption of gas increases manifold due to increased use of gas-fired appliances. He said that even though consumption rises as compared to in the normal months, there is no real change in consumer billing although the propensity to steal gas doubles.

The ASGM requested the local clerics to stress in their religious congregations that gas theft is not just a major crime that leads to prison term and imposition of heavy fines. Mr. Larik further added that the outcome of SSGC’s Winter Safety Awareness Campaign has been quite positive as the number of deaths resulting from negligence in the use of gas-fired appliances has fallen drastically in Balochistan and other areas since the last several years. He thanked the Ulemas for always supporting SSGC in this mission and hoped that they would continue to do so in the future too.

The ASGM (D-South) dispelled the notion that gas meters run fast resulting in faulty reading. He said that SSGC follows in this regard international gas measurement standards. In his vote of thanks, Madni Arafat Siddiqui, DGM / Incharge (Distribution-Quetta) thanked the ulemas for participating in this program in impressive numbers. He said that serving customers of Balochistan for he and his team is priority number one.

In their speeches, the ulemas praised the role played by SSGC in creating mass awareness about safe use of natural gas during winters and also in educating consumers about the menace of gas theft. They suggested that in the future SSGC must take up such awareness campaigns to different localities in the cities and towns of the franchise provinces of Sindh and Balochistan.
