Ramadan This Year Came With Gas Deficiency In Many Areas
In Karachi, Quetta, and Rawalpindi, household burners no longer have natural gas and it is said that it will continue like this for a while.
On the initial day of the month of Ramadhan, natural gas ran out from people’s cookers eventually as the Ramadan crescent was seen, abandoning them high and dry in Karachi, Rawalpindi and Quetta.
Despite the government’s announcement that buyers would have access to gas for sahoor and iftar, people from all over the nation reported low or no gas pressure all day long.
Sui Southern had specified times for what it referred to as “gas profiling” throughout Ramazan in a public release.
Despite the assurance that gas would be available for consumption at sahoor and iftar, the business noted a deficiency in its system due to a yearly 8–9% depletion in the nation’s gas reserves.
Gas profiling will proceed for this reason from 8 am to 2:30 pm, according to SSGC, in order to guarantee improved gas pressure.
Safdar Khooharo, an SSGC official, said that the service had not used load shedding across the nation but noted that some regions may experience low pressure due in part to the simultaneous lighting of between 20 million and 20.5 million stoves before sahoor.
The residential consumption jumped three times during Ramazan, according to representatives of the SNGPL regional office, and there was a disparity between supply and demand.
According to them, the corporation was prioritising domestic customers in accordance with special federal government regulations, and they assured customers that things will get better soon.
On the initial day of Ramadan, several areas of Quetta, like Karachi, were still without gas service.
Low gas pressure was a problem in the Jinnah Road, Kasi Road, Jail Road, Jinnah Town, and Model Town regions, while the total suspension and unexpected load shedding occurred in places beyond the province capital on day one of Ramadan.
According to sources, load shedding and low gas pressure are also present in the cities of Pishin, Kalat, Ziarat, Sibi, Mastung, and Bolan.
