According to the details, after the protest of the citizens against the load shedding that has been going on for the last several days in Karachi, KE explained the reason on its official page and said that with the onset of extremely hot and humid weather in Karachi, our peak demands have crossed 3450 MW.
furnace oil is not available in the market to the level required resulting in up to 800 mt shortfalls daily. this has been in the news and the Government is taking by allowing imports.
also, a reduction of 50 mmcfd RLNG by SSGC has further added to the challenge.
power from the wing corridor is also affected due to low wind speed.
all these factors have curtailed our supply-side from 3150 MW to 2800 MW.
KE has been updating the ministry on the power situation. Geven the decision by the ministry to import furnace oil, the situation is likely to normalize in the coming days.
