505 illegal connections removed as crackdown continues by SSGC

SSGC continued to tighten the noose on gas theft miscreants through multiple targeted raids in its Sindh and Balochistan franchise provinces. In fresh operations, the company’s theft control teams removed around 505 illegal domestic connections in different cities and towns.

In Karachi, the Customer Relations Department’s theft control teams removed 400 illegal domestic underground and overhead connections in Surjani Town. In the pilferage cases, residents had illegally extended gas connections that were dismantled during the raids. SSGC teams also killed service lines to prevent any further unauthorized use. Theft claims are being raised to recover losses incurred.

SSGC’s theft control teams also conducted raids on houses involved in underground and overhead theft in the Nawabshah and Larkana regions, removing 25 illegal domestic connections. The reading teams also removed theft clamps and rubber pipes used in pilferage. Consequently, theft claims are being raised.

In Balochistan, the crackdown against gas theft miscreants continued, with 80 overhead and underground illegal gas connections removed in the Quetta region. In some cases, fake meters were also found disconnected. In addition, clamps and rubber pipes used in gas theft were removed and confiscated by the theft control teams. Theft claims are also being raised.

In the meantime, strict monitoring and vigilance of the gas theft-infested areas are being ensured to prevent repeated pilferage cases in the residential neighbourhoods of the cities mentioned above.

SSGC is laser-focused on controlling the menace of gas theft through regular raids and aggressive prosecution. Gas theft is one of the major reasons behind unaccounted-for-gas (UFG) losses or line losses incurred by SSGC.
