Despite diminishing reserves over time, Sui Gas Field still remains one of the largest natural gas producing field in Pakistan. It contributes substantially to the country’s requirements with daily production of around 421 MMcf.

Sui gas field accounts for 6% of Pakistan’s gas production. Remaining reserves are estimated to be at about 2 trillion cubic feet (57×109 m3) and the daily production is around 604 million cubic feet (17.1×106 m3)

Law and order situation in Balochistan is a matter for concern for PPL. Repeated attacks on supply lines of natural gas has become an order of the day. 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Ashfaq Pervez Kayani has ordered that Frontier Corps (FC) will take charge of Sui gas fields and army soldiers will be withdrawn from all over the province.
