SSGC conducts major gas theft raids in Karachi


KARACHI: The Task Force of SSGC's Customer Relations Team conducted a number of raids in various parts of Karachi recently. These raids were conducted with the assistance of SSGC-backed Police Force and the Company's Security Services Departments in goths and localities in Gulzar-e-Hijri, Gulistan-e-Johar, National Highway, Super Highway, Taiser Town, Korangi, Saddar, Bin Qasim Town and Surjani Town.

The Task Force caught the miscreants stealing over 61,56,89 million cubic feet of gas directly from the main line. This volume amounts to Rs. 119 million in monetary terms. The team summarily made disconnections by dismantling the illegal lines.

The raids are conducted as part of the continuous drive by SSGC against the gas theft miscreants who are partly responsible for the menace of Unaccounted for Gas (UFG) or line losses. UFG is the difference between gas purchased in volume and gas used internally by the Company for its operations. UFG directly impacts the profitability of the Company.
