KARACHI: Managing Director Sui Southern Gas Company Munawar Baseer has emphasised on conservation of energy and asked industrialists to improve the efficiency of their captive power plants.

Addressing the members and office-bearers of 21st Century Business and Economic Club and Overseas Universities Alumni Club here at SSGC head office, he reiterated the imperatives for devising mechanisms for effective utilisation of energy, especially gas.

“We cannot waste gas,” he said referring to the shortfall that is expected to broaden to critical levels by the year 2010.

He said outdated plants waste more gas than its consumption and emphasised on usage of more efficient co-generation power plants. The MD also praised industrialists and commercial customers of the utility, who help in subsidising gas rates for domestic consumers.

Munawar Baseer assured the businessmen that the utility will ensure sustained supplies of gas for industrial growth.

The participants including diplomats, who had come to visit the SSGC head office, were also briefed on future expansion plan and new technologies introduced in the utility.

Founder President 21st Century Club and OUAC Salahuddin Haider and Senior General Managers of SSGC, Azim I. Siddiqui and Naeem-ur Rehman Akhoond also spoke.
