SDF re-pumps gas to regime-controlled areas

The US-led Kurdish forces re-pumped gas from Al-Shaddadi fields in northeastern Hasakah province to Al-Rayyan station in the central Homs region, after a 3-week halt came in response to the regime's siege of Kurdish civilians in the Sheikh Maqsoud neighborhood of Aleppo city.
The Russian Sputnik news agency quoted sources in the regime’s “Al-Jabsa” Gas Investment Directorate, in the town of Al-Shaddadi, as saying that the natural gas transmission pipeline from the Al-Jabsa gas plant in Al-Shaddadi returned to pumping on Wednesday.
The pipeline transports approximately 1,1 million cubic meters of natural gas daily to Al-Rayyan station for use in generating electric power and making natural fertilizers in central Syria, and also supplies some power plants in Homs countryside and Damascus countryside.
The Gabsa gas plant is the second productive plant in Syria after the Konico Gas Plant, with a daily production capacity of more than 3 million cubic meters, of which 1.5 million entered the electricity network before 2011, and 1.5 million for the production of fertilizers.
The pro-Syrian regime's Lebanese website, Al-Mayadeen, stated that "the Syrian government has contracted with a private contractor to purchase the gas produced from the Al-Jabsa gas plant in the city of Al-Shaddadi, south of Hasakah, towards gas plants and power transmission lines in Homs, with a daily pumping capacity of about 1.2 million cubic meters.".
The al-Mayadeen added that "despite the existence of a contract with a private entity to transport gas, the SDF deliberately stops pumping gas from the plant from time to time, in order to blackmail the Syrian government and pressure it to achieve their own demands."
 The SDF decided to stop the production of gas from the plant in the first week of Ramadan until the second day of Eid Al-Fitr, as part of its plan to besiege the regime-held areas in the cities of Hasakah and Qamishli.
