CNG stations open across Punjab and Islamabad after 37-day closure

Hordes of citizens in the metropolis made a beeline for compressed natural gas (CNG) stations on Sunday morning after operations resumed temporarily from 6 am until 6 pm.

The gas supply to the filling stations in Punjab and Islamabad had been suspended for the last 37 days.

According to Fayyaz Paracha, Central Leader of CNG Association, due to shortage of gas in severe cold, supply to CNG stations was suspended for 37 days. Gas was being supplied to domestic consumers by stopping supply to CNG stations, he added.

In order to ensure the business remains uninterrupted, Paracha hoped that the CNG sector would be allowed to import LNG itself next winter.

According to the Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC), CNG stations will remain open across Sindh for 24 hours from 8:00am Sunday.
