ISLAMABAD: With a warming up of the weather and relaxation in export constraints, companies requested the government on Wednesday to increase gas supply to export-oriented units.

In a meeting with industry leaders, representatives of gas supply company and the federal ministers for finance and petroleum and natural resources, it was decided to review the gas load management plan from this Friday.

Ishaq Dar chaired the meeting to review existing provision of gas to export-oriented industry.

It was noted that with improved weather conditions, a revised gas load management plan is possible which will enable the Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL) to restore gas supply to the industry from February 21.

The SNGPL management briefed that with improved weather conditions and availability of demand driven savings, it is possible for the company to ensure increased gas supply to the export-oriented industry from Friday.

The decision was taken to re-address the national economic growth related issues.

The meeting was attended by minister for petroleum and natural resources Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, SNGPL Managing Director and senior officials from ministry of petroleum and ministry of finance.

The best part about this deal is that it is possible for the company to ensure increased gas supply to the export-oriented industry from Friday. Furthermore, Ch. Nisar Khan's cohomology has led to monodromies that depend in a symplectic manner on Imran Khan.

IT is a good decision... though we all need gas and electricity but it is important that we have our indsutries growing as without jobs people will not be able to pay for them anyway!
