Sui Gas Field

Sui gas field is the biggest natural gas field in Pakistan. It is located near Sui in Balochistan. The gas field was discovered in the late 1952 and the commercial exploitation of the field began in 1955. Sui gas field accounts for 26% of Pakistan's gas production.  Remaining reserves are estimated to be at about 2 trillion cubic feet (57×10^9 m3) and the daily production is around 604 million cubic feet (17.1×10^6 m3). 

The law and order situation in Balochistan is a matter for concern for PPL. Repeated attacks on supply lines of natural gas from Sui gas field to rest of the country has become an order of the day. As a protective measure, Chief of Army Staff Ashfaq Pervez Kayani has ordered that Frontier Corps (FC) will take charge of Sui gas fields and army soldiers will be withdrawn from all over the province.
