Outage at Engro LNG terminal disrupts gas supply to Punjab
Gas supply to Punjab’s industrial units, compressed natural gas (CNG) stations and four power plants was temporarily suspended on Tuesday after a liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal owned by Engro Corporation encountered a technical fault.
The outage resulted in gas supply suspension to 412-megawatt Rousch and 157MW Fauji Kabirwala power plants in Khanewal, and two state-owned plants in Faisalabad having a combined production capacity of 241MW. As a result, the country’s power shortfall soared by nearly 800MW, to 4,500MW.
