SSGC conducted raids on gas theft miscreants in its franchise areas of Sindh and Balochistan. In recent raids, 955 illegal connections were removed in residential areas by the Company’s anti-gas theft teams.

In Karachi, 755 illegal connections were removed in raids conducted in the residential areas of Liaquatabad, Gulshan-e-Maymar, and Ramaswami, where the miscreants had extended illegal gas arrangements through direct SSGC lines. Service lines were removed, and theft claims are being raised accordingly.

In Balochistan, SSGC’s theft control teams continued to tighten the noose on the gas theft miscreants by removing 185 illegal connections from the residential areas in Quetta, Pishin, and Kalat. In addition, three fake meters were also removed during the operations. Theft claims are also being raised accordingly.

SSGC teams conducted more raids on overhead and underground connections in Nawabshah and Larkana regions, and summarily 15 connections were dismantled. Theft clamps and rubber pipes used in the theft were removed, and claims are being raised.

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