ISLAMABAD: All CNG vehicle owners have been advised to use only imported CNG vehicle cylinders in vehicles certified by the Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (Ogra), the authority said here on Wednesday. It also recommended that vehicle owners get their vehicles’ CNG system inspected at least once a year from trained personnel. Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is a high-pressure gas for which specially designed and fabricated seamless cylinders manufactured in accordance with prescribed standard should be used in vehicles, it said. LPG, oxygen, nitrogen, acetylene cylinders are not meant for CNG use, it added. The Ogra spokesperson further advised to get CNG cylinder test certification from the authorised CNG licensee.
