It seems that finally the All Pakistan CNG Association (APCNGA) and the government have finally reached some understanding about the opening of CNG stations in Punjab as Chairman CNG Association has started praising the government for ensuring reopening of gas stations.

CNG stations have not yet opened but as per CNG Association they are expected to be back in business within this week. The announcement made by petroleum minister to open CNG stations across Punjab during this week has gone down very well with the masses and CNG operators, said Captain (Retd) Shuja, central chairman APCNGA.

In a statement issued here today, he said that decision will provide relief to tens of millions of people, provide jobs and affordable fuel to transporters. He asked the CNG operators and those who have removed CNG kits from their vehicles to prepare for using environment friendly fuel.

The leader of the CNG sector said that government has been cooperating in transporting LNG to the CNG stations.

 The Nation whereas has learnt that CNG Association had been demanding share in domestic gas that was not accepted by the government apparently. Both the parties are now claiming that the gas provided to the CNG stations would be LNG based.

But if the government allows opening the CNG stations for 5 days a week then it is not possible to run the sector just on the left over LNG of power sector and the government must have to provide share from domestic gas in that case.
