KARACHI: Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) has announced 4- day CNG closure schedule for next week due to an accident in the Sui Gas Plant.
The pipeline and the boiler have been damaged and the plant has been shut down. Consequently, SSGC’s system is faced with the reduction of 110 mmcfd gas, said an official press release issued here on Saturday.
Teams from SSGC, SNGPL and PPL are on ground to repair the damage caused by the accident and it is expected that the repair work would be completed within next 48 hours.
The company is trying to maintain optimum pressure to the domestic and commercial customers and have accordingly planned the gas distribution as per the load management plan. Industrial customers, on the other hand, are requested to reduce their load by at least 30%.
