KARACHI: Muhammad Kamran Arbi, President of SITE Association of Industry, while expressing serious concern over very low (almost zero) gas pressure in SITE industrial area, Karachi, making it impossible for the industries to run boilers, furnaces or other gas-run machinery installed.

In a communique sent to Imran Maniar, Managing Director of SSGC, SAI President stated that since SITE area, Karachi, is located at the end of SSGC’S distribution network, the problem of low gas pressure has persisted for the past many years.

He mentioned that despite two days’ weekly closure and injection of RLNG in the system, the gas pressure has not yet improved to satisfactory and workable level in the SITE area. Resultantly, the Association has been receiving numerous complaints from Member industries stating that they are not getting the required gas pressure to run boilers, furnaces & other gas-run machinery.

Kamran Arbi demanded the MD SSGC to take immediate notice of the situation and arrange to provide gas to SITE industries with required pressure throughout the week without any off day. He reiterated that provision of gas with required pressure is compulsory to keep the wheel of industry running and to ship export orders on time.
