Heavy load shedding in different areas of the southern port city proceeded for over 12 hours on Tuesday, with residential and commercial customers suffering the worst part and the city’s sole power provider saying low gas pressure was influencing its generation ability.
The gas supply issue was getting worse across Sindh as the shortfall had shot up from 120 million cubic feet (mmcf) to 150mmcf and could even double this winter.
As indicated by an announcement gave by the K-Electric, it was confronting a progressing issue of low gas pressure from the SSGC.
Communicating worries that the reduction of gas pressure may lead to an expansion in load-shedding hours across all consumer segments, including the industrial zones, the K-Electric stated, the power utility demands that the SSGC put in all the necessary attempts to determine the circumstance as quickly as could reasonably be expected.
The SSGC on the other side, kept up that there was no gas load-shedding in its establishment regions.
Instead a low-pressure circumstance has been made because of lessening gas supplies from various gas fields claimed by E&P organizations.
It is appropriate to take note of that the Sinjhoro and Zarghun Gas Fields are going through Annual Turn Around (ATA) at the present time and various different gas fields are likewise inserting decreased gas into SSGC’s system. Thus, there are complaints of low gas pressure from the clients.
SSGC keeps on giving KE with 190 to 200 mmcfd gas so the individuals of Karachi don’t confront power blackouts for long.
As gas fields were constantly exposed to low gas creation, the upcoming winter would be difficult for all the customers, something that the SSGC has just directed the K-Electric and different stakeholders in order to make interchange plans.
