Pakistan to face an intense Gas Shortage Crisis in Winters

According to sources from the gas utility, the nation might experience a severe gas shortage during the winter.

Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL) sources advised consumers to get ready for the coming gas crisis.

The gas utility sources stated that the country currently produces 750 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) of gas while importing 1000 MMcfd of RLNG.

According to sources, “the gas demand has started to rise and the shortfall is likely to soar to its highest level.”

The demand for gas has increased to above 2500 million cubic feet per day, while the supply is currently 1700 MMcfd, according to sources.

According to sources, gas will likely be delivered to domestic customers in the provinces of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa three times per day, but it will be challenging to supply gas to the industrial and commercial sectors.

According to sources, “the orders of imported LNG have been curtailed due to very expansive rates.”

The chambers of commerce have been informed about the impending gas crisis, according to a source at SNGPL.

According to additional sources, “no attention is given to the discovery of new gas deposits, while our local gas reserves are likely to run out within the next few years.”

Sui Northern and Southern gas companies may run out of gas by 1.2 billion cubic feet. The ministry has suggested providing up to 350 mmcfd of LNG to domestic consumers.

Sources claim that it has been proposed to stop providing gas to commercial consumers on November 1 and switch them to LNG.
