Punjab CNG stations reopen today


All CNG stations in five regions of Punjab ((Lahore, Sheikhupura, Gujranwala, Multan Sahiwal) will reopen on Friday (today) after a three-month gas suspension.

The CNG stations will supply gas for 48 hours (Friday 6am to Sunday 6am) according to new gas load management plan issued by the Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited.

Gas supply to Zone-II (Faisalabad, Sargodha, Islamabad, Rawalpindi and Bahawalpur regions) will be restored on Tuesday for 48 hours.

According to spokesman of SNGPL, this schedule would be followed till any further decision, and hoped that CNG supply would be increased to four days per week soon.

During winters the domestic sector gas consumption had risen exponentially, resulting in severe depletion of transmission pack. Therefore, gas supply to the CNG sector had been suspended on December 10, 2013.
