TextileFuture has been reporting on the difficulties Pakistan’s textile industry has to meet because of the insufficient energy supply situation in that country, sending productivity down and raise costs. Upon suggestion by All Pakistan Textile Mills Association and on demand of the Chief Minister for Punjab to the energy provider, the mills are getting ten hours/day gas supply to keep production activity operational during the electricity load’s shedding, however after the ending of Ramadan it might be reduced to six hours/day to serve also other customer brackets. The experiment will be evaluated at the end of this week and then a final decision on continuity will be made, in any case such a measure would support dwindling textile exports. On the other hand the scheme of electricity would be marginally on the upside. Also the demand for more gas imports from Qatar or other suppliers and integration into the system is demanded. These voices state that there is a shortfall of gas during summer and it will double in wintertime.
