Low gas pressure hit the production of several textile mills in the industrial hubs of Savar, Manikganj and Ashilia, causing loss to the factory owners.
Sources at the Titas Gas Transmission and Distribution Company Limited said gas distribution has fallen as LNG import to the country has dropped.
Authorities of some of the factories told media that the gas pressure dropped significantly since June 26 night in several areas of Savar and Ashulia.
The gas pressure, which was supposed to be 10 psi (pound per square inch), dropped to 2 psi recently.
Due to lower gas pressure, factories are forced to close all their units, causing huge losses.
