The Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) said on Monday gas shortage might hit residential consumers in the coming days, as repair works were underway at an LNG terminal.

In a statement, the gas company said its consumers could face a shortage for up to four days, including Fauji Fertilisers, K Electric, and Nooriabad Power Company.

"If the gas shortage cannot be controlled, then supply to export industries will be reduced," the gas company added.
