Industries must regularize extra load: Acting MD SSGC


Staff Reporter


Mohammad Wasim, Acting MD, SSGC has stressed that all industries must ensure that any extra connected load extension is formally registered with the Company by renewing the Gas Sales Agreement (GSA) with the Company.
The Acting MD made these remarks while inspecting a Joint Industrial Survey in SITE Industrial Area in Karachi as part of the Company’s Security Services and Counter Gas Theft Operations (SS and CGTO) Department’s drive against theft of natural gas. During the Survey activity, the AMD was accompanied by Brigadier (R) Mohammad Abuzar, DG (SS and CGTO) and the Company’s Joint Load Survey team.
The AMD also emphasized that no captive power connection should not be interconnected with industrial connections. He requested the industrialists to totally refrain from using gas suction boosters since they hinder overall gas supply and affect the measurement devices in the surrounding areas.
Mr. Wasim warned that the practice of extending gas connection to the next industrial plot or units in the vicinity is totally illegal since the act is a blatant violation of GSA signed between the industrial unit and SSGC.
The AMD said that SSGC is waging an all-out war against gas theft in its franchise areas of Sindh and Balochistan and requested the general public to collaborate with SSGC in uprooting this crime against the community.
