Karachi, March 19, 2013 (PPI-OT): This is with reference to the news item that appeared in some section of the press, under the heading “NAB asks SSGC to call tenders afresh”. SSGC strongly denies the contents of the news item and would like to clarify the factual position in this regards as per following statement.
An initial meeting was called by the NAB authorities to look into the procurement process of LNG. This briefing was attended by Managing Director SSGC and Senior General Manager (Engineering Services) who is also the in-charge of this project.
During the briefing, the procurement process that was adopted was explained in detail by the SSGC’s team. The NAB authorities requested for some additional information which is yet to be provided by SSGC. Neither was any conclusion drawn nor was any decision taken for award or cancellation of this tender, therefore this news item is incorrect.
