Aptma berates suspension of gas supply to industry

Aptma berates suspension of gas supply to industry

ISLAMABAD: The All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (Aptma) Punjab Chairman Ali Pervaiz has expressed serious concern over suspension of the supply of system gas quota of 2-days per week to Punjab industries from 7th of December 2017. He added the government had extended this quota last year in order to reduce the cost of doing business and it somewhat addressed the grave issue of inter-provincial disparity as industries in KP and Sindh continue to be supplied system gas for 7 days a week.

He said the textile industry is predominantly located in Punjab where total consumption of gas, including system and RLNG, is not more than 300 MMCFD.

The Punjab industry was getting just 28 percent system gas under the quota

and balance 72 percent requirement was met through more expensive imported RLNG, says a press release issued by APTMA Punjab from Lahore.
