‘CNG stations to be closed down next month’

Federal Petroleum Minister Dr Asim Hussain said on Thursday that all the Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) stations would have to be closed down in January as the country was struck with an acute gas shortage.
The minister told the National Assembly’s Standing Committee on Petroleum that gas pressure was so low that gas supply to all consumers would have to be suspended if the CNG stations were not closed next month.
According to our staff reporter, in Lahore, despite Thursday being the day all CNG stations were supposed to reopen after the weekly three-day holiday, all the stations were forced to shut down.
All pumps in Garden Town, Faisal Town, Iqbal Town and Cantt were closed down at around 5pm, after which gas was not available anywhere in the city. The reason cited was low gas pressure.
