No more gas load-shedding from next month

ISLAMABAD: Minister for Petroleum and Natural Resources Syed Naveed Qamar said decision to shutter the fertilizer industry vis-a-vis gas load-shedding programme would save sufficient gas to ensure uninterpted gas supply to domestic consumers from January next year.

No gas load-shedding from next month“Teperature further falls in January increasing the use of geysers and heaters everywhere, so we have planned it in advance, the minister said after MNA Malik Shaki Bashir Awan raised a Calling Notice Attention Notice regarding gas load shedding.

The minister attributed gas load shedding and low pressure to the gap between supply and demand in every winter.

Besides, new towns and localities had been added to the already stressed system, he added.

He said the government had adopted a uniform policy throughout the country, and there was not any point of cutting gas supply to any particular province.

“The whole country is ours; the whole industry is ours; and, it’s the responsibility of us all to efficiently run it,” he added.

Referring to Iran-Pakistan-India (IPI) and Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI) gas pipeline projects, Naveed Qamar said the present PPP-led coalition government had taken those important schemes on fast-track, and it would take around 4-5 years to accomplish.
