Pakistan faces gas shortage as temperature drops

Pakistan is facing gas outages as demand has exceeded supply following an abrupt drop in temperature in different parts of the country. The situation resulted in long queues outside tandoors due to low gas pressure at residences and prompted Karachi-based Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) to suddenly suspend supplies to CNG fuel stations in Sindh and Balochistan to keep supplies to households normal on Tuesday.

In total, SSGC faced a shortfall of around 400 mmcfd as demand peaked at around 1,500 mmcfd compared to supplies of around 1,160 mmcfd in the system from gas fields in Sindh and Balochistan.
