Gas Crisis To Get More Intensified In Next Two Years: Omar Ayub Khan

ISLAMABAD: Power Minister Omar Ayub Khan on Friday passed the buck of prevailing gas shortfall in the country onto previous governments saying they didn’t focus their attention on gas exploration.

Responding to a calling-attention notice during the Senate session, he said Sindh currently produces 2,243 mmcfd (million cubic feet per day) natural gas.

Amid protest by Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Senator Sassui Palejo over gas shortage in the province, the minister said they could have supplied 65 mmcfd gas to the province but the provincial government didn’t give the right of way for laying down a gas pipeline.
