Top Telecom Firm Caught of Stealing Gas to Run Phone Tower

In Karak, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, a major pipeline carrying gas was broken into by a foreign mobile phone business operating in Pakistan.

Sui Northern Gas Pipelines (SNGPL) asserted in a First Information Report (FIR) that the distributor had carried out a significant crackdown on gas thieves at the command of the federal government.

The mobile phone tower in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s province Karak was searched by the company’s regional team, according to a representative for SNGPL, and it was discovered that the generator for the tower was being powered by an unauthorized gas connection.

The tower is run by Jazz, according to the FIR. The staff member stationed at the tower was stealing gas from the primary 8-inch gas line using a 200-foot pipe. As a result, the generator, pipe, and other gas theft-related tools were taken by the SNGPL team.

The personnel of the telecom business are the subject of an FIR that was also filed by the gas distributor.

According to a Jazz spokeswoman, “Jazz operates its network utilizing legal electrical or fuel arrangements across the country and is entirely compliant with all applicable regulations. To achieve this, Jazz has formed contracts with independent providers for the site-specific fueling of generators as a backup power source. Furthermore, Jazz vehemently denies any such claims and has no natural gas-powered sites in Pakistan.

“In the meantime, the business has launched an internal inquiry to learn more specifics about the questioned site, and we will take the required action by the results. A multinational corporation that has spent more than $10.5 billion in the nation will be held to the highest standards of integrity, he stressed, and any efforts to damage its reputation through unfounded claims will be taken very seriously.
