Pakistan: Miscreants blow up gas pipeline in Balochistan’s Mach, Quetta affected

Miscreants have blown up a 24-inch Sui gas pipeline in Mach town, Kachhi District, Balochistan, Pakistan, disrupting gas supply to multiple areas, including Quetta, as reported. The explosion resulted in a complete suspension of the gas supply, according to Sui Southern Gas Company sources.
The Sui Southern Gas Company announced that repair work on the damaged pipeline will start on Monday morning, as reported by ARY News.Earlier in February, gas supply was already suspended to Mach town and its surrounding area after another gas pipeline passing through the Bolan River was similarly attacked, according to officials.
A powerful explosion caused a portion of the six-inch pipeline to catch fire, the officials added.
The engineers of the Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) stopped the supply and dispatched a repair and maintenance team along with the required machinery to the affected site. SSGC spokesman Safdar Hussain said that they immediately started the repair work.
He stated, “The team on the ground focused its energies on repairing the line at the earliest to ensure supply was resumed by the next evening.”
