SHC adjourns hearing till Feb 04 closure of CNG on sunday

KARACHI: An appellate bench of High Court of Sindh adjourned hearing of a an appeal against Sui Southern Gas Company Limited (SSGCL) for frequent closure of natural gas supply to CNG stations in Sindh.

The appeal impugnes order by single judge of SHC who ruled that closure on Sunday by the defendant SSGCL cannot be challenged. It said that CNG station owners have no vested right.

The appellant side maintains that impugned order is not in accordance with law. The bench asked that whether the closure is a policy matter.  The province producing natural gas  has the top preference, came the reply from the counsel for appellant.

The counsel for defendant SSGCL took the  position that that there are consecutive orders passed by benches of this court. He said that federal government frames policy and accordingly, domestic consumers are on top of consumer list. He further contended that SSGCL cannot send gas allocated to Sindh and Balochistan province to any other part of the country and such allocation was decided by the Council of Common Interest (CCI).

The bench seeking documents particularly pertaining to allocation made by CCI adjourned further proceedings till Feb 04.
