Express April 26, 2010

LAHORE: All Pakistan CNG Association Chairman Ghias Paracha said that the closure of CNG stations for one day a week will not improve the power generation in the country.

Speaking to Express, Paracha said Sui Northern Gas has forwarded a schedule of closing down CNG stations across the country.

According to the decision, CNG stations across Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhawa will remain closed on Tuesday while Sui Southern Gas will also suspend the supply to CNG stations for one day a week.

The chairman added that the decision may only increase electricity production by 100 megawatts while curtailing CNG supply will add to people's problems.
