Gas load-shed­ding re­duced to lowest level: Khaqan

The Pak Banker - - NATIONAL -

ISLAMABAD: Min­is­ter for Petroleum and Nat­u­ral Re­sources Shahid Khaqan Ab­basi has said that gas load-shed­ding has been re­duced to lowest level as a re­sult of con­crete steps taken by the in­cum­bent gov­ern­ment. Talk­ing to a pri­vate news chan­nel, he said un­in­ter­rupted gas sup­ply was be­ing en­sured to in­dus­trial sec­tor, gasi­fied power plants and fer­til­iz­ers for smooth pro­duc­tion in all sec­tors. He said Pak­istan had signed cheap­est and fair deal of Liqui­fied Nat­u­ral Gas ( LNG) with Qatar and many in­ter­na­tional or­ga­ni­za­tions have ac­knowl­edged the agree­ment. The min­is­ter said Khy­ber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) was on top of the list when it comes to gas theft, as gas was be­ing stolen in the prov­ince more than any other part of the coun­try. He said that KPK gov­ern­ment had of­fi­cially been ap­proached to stop gas theft in the prov­ince but no step has been taken for the pur­pose.
