SHC directs SSGC to supply 276mmcfd gas to K-Electric

KARACHI: Sindh High Court (SHC) on Tuesday ordered Sui Southern Gas Company Limited (SSGCL) to supply 276 MMCFD gas to K-Electric to produce electricity to overcome the power shortage in Karachi.

The dispute between K-Electric and SSGCL over the gas supply from latter to former found its way to the court after K-Electric moved SHC against SSGCL accusing it of not supplying adequate gas for production of electricity. The dispute between the two utilities resulted in a severe power shortage in the metropolis in recent weeks with the onset of summer season.
