LAHORE – The Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL) will establish a chair on gas engineering at Institute of Chemical Engineering and Technology, University of the Punjab.

In this regard, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between the SNGPL Managing Director Arif Hameed and PU Vice-chancellor Dr Mujahid Kamran here on Tuesday.

According to the MoU, the SNGPL would sponsor a chair on gas engineering for research work regarding identification and mitigation of internal corrosion, alternate energy sources such as bio gas and developing innovative techniques for energy conservation. The SNGPL would provide an annual grant of Rs3.32 million to Institute of Chemical Engineering and Technology for the purpose.

Arif Hameed, on the occasion, appreciated the efforts being carried out by PU regarding the mitigation of internal corrosion and research in the field of alternate energy sources.
