Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL) has issued a new schedule under which two gas holidays will be observed in the CNG sector from next week, as the temporary break in gas load-shedding in Ramazan comes to an end. No CNG holidays were observed in the last days of Ramazan while CNG stations received uninterrupted gas during the Eid holidays. It announced that CNG supply would be suspended on Monday and Tuesday every week in Lahore, Sheikhupura, Multan, Sahiwal and Gujranwala. Similarly, it said that CNG stations would remain closed on Thursday and Friday every week in Faisalabad, Islamabad and Bahawalpur.
