ISLAMABAD/KARACHI:
Consequent to Mr. Zuhair Siddiqui’s resignation from the office of Managing Director, Sui Southern Gas Company, the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Resources has appointed Mr. Shoaib Warsi as the new MD of the Company. The notification of Mr. Warsi’s appointment was issued by the Ministry on Thursday after the former MD submitted his resignation on personal grounds after leading the organization for around two years.

Mr. Shoaib Warsi brings in high level of professional experience as his marathon association with the gas utility spans over 37 years, mainly with Company’s Distribution and Transmission divisions spread over its franchise areas of Sindh and Balochistan. Having completed his MS in Environmental Engineering from NED University and BE (Mechanical) from Sindh University Jamshoro, he came into the folds of SSGC in 1977 as Trainee Engineer.

Over the years he made his way up the organizational cadres and went on to serve as GM (Distribution), SGM (Distribution-North), SGM (Unaccounted-for-Gas) and last served as Senior General Manager (Transmission). Mr. Warsi has been largely attributed in Company’s accomplishments in design and construction of a number of strategically important pipeline network projects, system reinforcement, pipeline rehabilitation schemes, Town Border Stations (TBSs) and Customer Meter Stations (CMSs).

Mr. Warsi has been actively involved in the design of Automatic Pressure Management System (APMS) for installing on Pressure Regulating Stations (PRSs) to maintain optimum pressures in the distribution network for reduction of gas losses and has represented the organization in many national and international conferences. He enjoys excellent personal rapport with Company’s stakeholders including industrial and trade associations.
