LAHORE:


Sui Northern Gas Pipe Lines Limited (SNGPL) Managing Director Arif Hamid said on Monday that gas supply to the industry and CNG sector will be restored for one day a week. While he did not finalise the day, he said the restoration will start in the first week of the current month as he addressed the media at the SNGPL headquarters.


The current shortfall is 1,250 mmcfd, but the company will restore gas supply to both sectors to meet the need. Import of LNG schedules in November this year will help improve the shortfall situation during the next winter season, Hamid said.


The SNGPL official added that the finance committee of the company’s board of directors has conceptually approved projects, comprising of laying 1,294-kilometer high pressure transmission pipelines for the upcoming LNG, Iran gas and anticipated indigenous gas supplies in SNGPL pipeline network.
