K-Electric-SSGC dispute remains unresolved

ISLAMABAD: The two Karachi-based power and gas utilities – K-Electric and Sui Southern Gas Company Ltd – have been unable to settle their differences over gas supply for power generation despite the federal government’s facilitating intervention about five months ago.

The utilities blamed each other for the failure on Thursday at a public hearing presided over by the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) Chairman Tariq Saddozai, who noted that the consumers in Karachi would be the ultimate sufferers of higher rates and power cuts.
