The supply of gas to the industries in SITE area has been suspended by Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) leading to protests from local industrialists.

Abdul Hadi, President, SITE Association of Industry, has expressed deep concern over non-supply of gas to the area which has intensified the gas crisis and production activities have come to a standstill position, forcing man industries to shut down.

He demanded to restore the gas supply to the industries at the required pressure so that production activities can be resumed.

He appealed to Prime Minister Imran Khan and Federal Minister for Energy Hammad Azhar to take notice of the non-supply of gas.

He said that the industries of the SITE area have been facing a shortage of gas for a week and now the supply has been suspended.

“The non-supply of gas is affecting production activities, which has led to the closure of several industries.

Gas pressure is constantly zero and despite repeated complaints to the SSGC, the gas pressure has not improved,” he said in a statement.
