LAHORE: The Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Ltd (SNGPL) has suspended gas supply to captive power plants (CPPs) due to an increased consumption by domestic consumers.
A press release issued by the company on Wednesday said since the gas demand in the domestic sector had increased significantly due to severe cold weather, supply to CPPs had been suspended from 9pm on Wednesday (Dec 15).
The decision has been taken as per the approved load management programme, it said, to continue uninterrupted gas supply to domestic consumers.
It has, however, requested domestic consumers to use gas only when required and turn to electric heaters and geysers instead of gas-run devices. It also urged the consumers to avoid using compressors to suck in gas as it deprives other users of their rights.
