Karachi: With the advent of winter season, natural gas demand increases considerably due to additional heating load, especially in the domestic sector. This invariably results in low pressures in the system and inconvenience to gas consumers.
To help household consumers maintain adequate gas pressures, SSGC has decided to curtail supplies to CNG stations in Karachi and Interior Sindh for two days in a week as per the following schedule:
|29-Nov-11 (2300 hrs.)||Tuesday||11:00 pm||1-Dec-11||Thursday||11:00 pm (2300 hrs.)|
|7-Dec-11 (2300 hrs.)||Wednesday||11:00 pm||8-Dec-11||Thursday||11:00 pm (2300 hrs.)|
|9-Dec-11 (2100 hrs.)||Friday||9:00 pm||10-Dec-11||Saturday||7:00 am (0700 hrs.)|
|10-Dec-11 (2100 hrs.)||Saturday||9:00 pm||11-Dec-11||Sunday||7:00 am (0700 hrs.)|
While regretting the inconvenience caused to the CNG consumers, SSGC reiterates that the gas supply will be restored as soon as pressures normalizes and requests all its valued customers to use gas judiciously.
It must be mentioned here that SSGC had called a meeting of the CNG associations at its Head Office on November 26, 2011 to take the stakeholders into confidence over the situation arising out of the winter load and SSGC’s strategy of gas curtailment in this regard.
