Gas pipeline blown up in Balochistan


gas-pipe-inchOccupied Balochistan: An 18-inch Sui gas pipeline was blown up in the early hours of Sunday in the Uch area of Balochistan, DawnNews reported.

According to the report, the explosion suspended gas supply to the Uch power plant in Balochistan causing a reduction of more than 525 megawatts of power generation.

As a result, electricity supply in many areas in Lahore and Punjab has been shelved.

Gas officials said that repair work has already commenced and restoration could take about two days.

Barely two days earlier, a gas pipeline explosion in Quetta, reduced 150 megawatts of power generation due to which Habibullah Coastal Power and Sheikh Munda Power Houses are still closed.

The overall electricity shortage in the country has reached 5000 megawatts.
