No gas for CNG sector in winter, decides federal govt

ISLAMABAD: There will be no gas for the CNG sector during the winter months, decided the Cabinet Committee on Energy (CCoE) on Thursday.

During a meeting chaired by Federal Minister for Planning, Development and Special Initiatives Asad Umar, it was noted that the enhanced demand of domestic consumers will be met through savings from captive power generation.

“A prudent pressure management plan will also be developed to ensure a stable supply of gas to the consumers,” a statement issued by the Ministry of Planning read.

Meanwhile, the Petroleum Division presented the projected natural gas supply and demand position in the country for winter.

During the meeting, it presented a detailed impact analysis of different policy options for the management of gas demand during winter 2021-22. It is expected that industrial activity will be a focus in the gas management plans, especially the export industry.

The CCoE approved the demand side of the proposals submitted by the Petroleum Division and noted that the committee will consider the supply side proposals in the next meeting.
