Pakistan’s industrial, commercial and domestic consumers will face a gas suspension from Saturday.

The RLNG gas import terminal at Port Qasim will be closed on Saturday for repairs and maintenance, which will cause difficulties in gas supply to industrial, commercial, and domestic consumers across the country. This will be the third gas outage in the last four months.

According to a letter from Sui Southern Gas Company Limited, the Gas Port RLNG terminal at Port Qasim will be closed for emergency repairs and maintenance from 12 noon on Saturday. At present, Pakistan has only imported LNG terminals through which 1200 million cubic feet of gas is imported daily and if the gas cut-off is stopped for two days, the gas supply will be halved across the country.
According to the gas company, the terminal is being closed for immediate repair of a 30-inch diameter pipeline which will cut off the supply to SSGC through the Fusco terminal while gas will be supplied to customers in Balochistan and Sindh through SSGC. The supply will also be halved. The company currently supplies 150 million cubic feet of gas per day to Balochistan and Sindh, which will be reduced to 75 mmcfd after the terminal closes.

The company says it is ensuring that gas supply to residential and commercial customers continues on a priority basis, while Karachi-based Electric will have a 20 mmcfd cut in gas supply. The gas supply will be reduced to 150 MMCFD per day. K Electric has been informed to arrange alternative fuels for power generation.
