No gas loadshedding during winter: ECC

Islamabad (Staff Report): The Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) on Tuesday decided that there will be no gas loadshedding during winter.


The meeting chaired by Finance Minister Asad Umar also decided that 150-200 mmcfd of regasified liquefied natural gas (RLNG) will be injected in the system to overcome the gas shortage.

Participants of the meeting also decided to allow the Power Division to avail the Islamic Financing Facility by borrowing Rs38 billion.

Gas loadshedding, especially in Punjab and Balochistan, accompanies winter every year due to a shortage in the system. Every year authorities attempt to overcome the shortfall, yet the issue has persisted.
