dr asimKARACHI: Advisor to the Prime Minister for Petroleum and Natural Resources Dr. Asim Hussain has said that supply of natural gas to domestic consumers in Karachi will start improving from Monday.


This he stated while addressing a news conference at the head office of Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) Ltd here on Saturday.


He said that a plan has been prepared to ensure uninterrupted gas supply to the domestic consumers in winter.


Dr. Asim said that the mushroom growth of CNG stations in Karachi is a main reason of low gas pressure in various localities.


He said the shortfall of natural gas is due to wrong policies of the previous government as no work was done to increase exploration of natural gas in the country.


He said that new connections were given without considering the supply and demand position during the previous regime.


Dr. Asim said that the present government has taken various measures including Pak -Iran Gas pipeline project to address the situation.


He said a complete ban has been imposed on new gas connections for CNG stations and other bulk industrial consumers which will definitely help improve the gas supply to existing consumers.


He said that tenders for import of LNG would be opened on January 9.


Managing Director of SSGC and other officials were also present.
