According to sources, Sui Southern Gas Company is facing a shortage of more than 300 mmcfd due to a technical fault in the Sawan gas field, resulting in a drop in gas supply of 44 mmcfd.

Gas supply has been suspended in North Karachi, North Nazimabad, Gulistan-e-Jauhar, Orangi, Korangi, Landhi, Baldia, Qaim Khani Colony, Liaquatabad, Hijrat Colony, Garden, DHA, Sadar, Gadap, Kathore, and Scheme 33.
