State Minister for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Nasrul Hamid on Sunday said that it will take two days to improve the power and gas supply situation in the country.
“The current disruption in power and gas supply will improve as one of the two terminals will resume supply within two days,” he told reporters at his office in the ministry.
He said that after the suspension of gas supply from two floating LNG terminals, one terminal left its place for safe location while another one remained stationed at its own location.
The suspension caused huge shortage in gas supply that triggered the current level of load shedding across the country.
“But I hope, gas supply will resume from one terminal within two days which will improve the situation with the supply of 400 mmcfd gas,” he said adding that it will take 10-12 days to resume gas supply from the other LNG terminal.
He said with the grace of Almighty Allah, no big disaster happened in the power and gas sector.
