K-Electric cites low gas pressure for power cuts

K-Electric Load Shedding Updates

KARACHI: K-Electric, on Wednesday issued a press release citing low gas pressure as a reason behind the “brief disruption of power” many citizens within the metropolis are experiencing for the past two days.

K-Electric’s press release came at least seven hours after the Sui Southern Gas Company ─ a government-run organisation managing country’s natural gas assets ─ issued a tweet, saying because of low line pack pressure, supply of compressed natural gas will remain suspended on Thursday.

The power supply company tweeted the press release as patrons from various areas in the city took to Twitter to complain about the unannounced power cut over the last two days.

In its press release, K-Electric stated, “Power supply in some areas was interrupted briefly due to the tripping at one of the units of [the company’s] power plants that occurred on Tuesday and low gas pressure on Wednesday.”

“To manage the load, select areas of the city faced intermittent interruption in power supply,” it added.

K-Electric further stated it is rotating the “load management spells… and kept [them] brief brief in duration to minimize the inconvenience”, adding that it is working with relevant authorities to restore the gas pressure during the day.
