Minister of State for Petroleum and Natural Resources Jam Kamal Khan on Friday held a meeting with the managing director of Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) and his team to review the progress on liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) air-mix plants proposed for Balochistan.
First plant would be installed soon in Awaran town and preliminary work on others would also be completed swiftly, he said.
Khan said surveys of all sites had been done and DCs concerned had been told to identify the pieces of land in writing. He also instructed the authorities that estimates should be reviewed properly as some parts were showing high numbers.
He said the government would install the plants in all those districts of Balochistan which did not have gas in their district headquarters and in the second phase major towns would be covered.
He told the SSGC managing director to speed up remaining work and processes so that plants could be started.
