As part of its event calender, SSGC recently participated in the 10th edition of Pakistan Oil, Gas and Energy Exhibition (POGEE), the annual mega energy sector exhibition-cum-conference, to project a progressive image of the Company committed towards energy sustainability and diversification. The ingeniously- styled booth, fabricated and remodeled on the lines of the recently acquired LPG import terminal at Port Qasim Authority was adjudged the 'Best Corporate Booth' for the second year in a row, amidst widespread admiration from local and foreign delegates. The Pegasus Consultancy-organized POGEE was held from May 8 to 10, 2012 at Karachi's Expo Centre and featured a number of foreign and local companies from the energy sector.
The 'thematic' booth was the creative brainchild of the Company's Corporate Communication Department (CCD). CCD's personnel along with Customer Relations and SSGC LPG officials networked with the visitors and delegates and responded to queries about the Company's LPG distribution plans as well as transnational pipeline projects such as IP and TAPI.
The 3-day event was inaugurated by Dr. Farooq Sattar, Federal Minister for Overseas Pakistanis who also visited the SSGC booth with Aasim Siddiqui, Chairman, Pegasus and admired the innovation displayed by CCD in constructing it. He climbed the back of the booth and had his picture taken with the CCD team. On the inaugural day Syed Hassan Nawab, DMD (Operations) and Shoaib Warsi, SGM (Distribution- South) also visited the booth and met with the personnel from CCD and other departments deputed in the exhibition.
Azim Iqbal Siddiqui, MD, SSGC, accompanied by Zuhair Siddiqui, DMD (Corporate Services), Yusuf J. Ansari, SGM (Management Services) and Dr. Shehla Naqvi, GM (HR/Medical Services) visited the booth on the second day of the exhibition. They were visibly impressed by the omnipresent booth and lauded CCD for a job well done. The MD also spoke to the media about issues related to the LPG subsidiary and Company's plans for bridging the demand- supply gap.
The third and concluding day was marked by SSGC LPG (Pvt) Limited's COO Malik Usman Hassan's comprehensive presentation entitled 'SSGC LPG - Bridging Pakistan's Energy Gap'. Malik Usman gave his presentation at a conference session entitled 'Energy Supply Options: Imported or Indigenous'. The event concluded on a high note for SSGC as Ms. Nasreen Hussain, DGM (CCD) received the 'Best Corporate Booth' award from Akhtar Shehzad, GM (Operations), Pegasus Consultancy.
