KARACHI: The All Pakistan CNG Association (APCNGA) lauded the initiatives of the government to revive the struggling Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) industry worth Rs450 billion. The industry has been facing troubles for years owing to reduced supply of natural gas and other issues creating problems for consumers and putting investments at stake. “The situation is now taking a positive turn,” said APCNGA Central Chairman Pervaiz Khan Khattak. In a statement, he said that CNG outlets in Punjab would provide fuel on Monday and Thursday throughout the two days against the earlier schedule when CNG was provided for 18 hours. He said that the government should permit sale of CNG for another 24 hours a week to keep the industry afloat. Khattak said the issue of low gas pressure must be resolved, leaving a positive impact on oil import bill, environment and fares.
