ISLAMABAD:


All Pakistan CNG Association (APCNGA) central leader Ghiyas Paracha on Monday said 600 CNG stations have been opened for 15 days continuous operations after a gap of eight years, which is a great achievement.


After 15 days, the CNG stations would be closed for three to four days and then reopened again so that consumers could get affordable fuel for 20 to 22 days a month, he said in a statement.


He said the CNG stations that had paid advance for LNG supply started getting gas after arrival of LNG shipment from Qatar. Currently, CNG is available across Punjab and at all important points in Rawalpindi, Islamabad, Lahore and other cities. He said the number of CNG stations providing clean fuel to masses would swell to 1,000 within few days to provide fuel that is comparatively 30% cheaper than petrol.
