Staff Reporter: The government’s move to ration the factory has changed the decision within a week at the behest of industry owners.
Petrobangla said in a press release on Thursday that the decision to suspend gas consumption for all industrial customers from 5 pm to 9 pm (4 hours) has been withdrawn, effective April 22.
Petrobangla on April 11 decided not to supply gas to industrial plants for four hours after shutting off the gas supply to CNG stations for six hours a day to increase gas supply for power generation in the month of Ramadan.
The industrialists were dissatisfied with this decision. As a result, the decision changed less than a week after it took effect on April 15.
Regarding the change of decision, Petrobangla said, “Rationing in the industry was taken to keep the supply to the power plants uninterrupted due to the gas crisis. But it has been reopened in response to demands from industry owners. “
