Last week, the Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) stopped gas supply to non-export industries, followed by 50 per cent cut in supply to captive power plants, to ensure gas availability to residential customers.
The spokesman of SSGC said the company was facing a gas shortfall of 200-250mmcfd from various gas fields.
Overall gas production from various fields fell by 4.3 per cent to 3,377mmcfd during June 9-15 as compared to 3,530mmcfd from June 2-8.
However, there was a slight jump in gas production to 3,544mmcfd during May 25-June 1 from 3,495mmcfd during May 19-May 25.
According to SSGC the current gas shortage situation in Sindh had arisen due to temporary shutdown of Kunnar-Pasakhi Deep (KPD) gas field, one of the largest suppliers of natural gas, which is undergoing annual maintenance work.
