LAHORE – The Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL) has resumed gas supply to Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) stations operating in the Federal Capital and Punjab province after a two-week suspension due to the commodity shortage.

Making a formal announcement of CNG stations’ reopening on Friday, a spokesman of the Petroleum and Natural Resources Division said the government was committed to providing inexpensive and environment-friendly fuel to consumers.

He said the use of CNG in motor vehicles would have a positive impact on the environment, besides it would help reduce transportation cost especially for those using public transport as the government has brought down the CNG price by Rs 5 per liter.

He said the government was making an all-out effort for the promotion of the CNG sector, adding that a long-term policy was being worked out to provide inexpensive fuel to consumers.
