LAHORE - The SNGPL Lahore Regions was providing 75 percent of its gas supply to domestic sector as per the government’s instructions, company spokesman said in a statement on Sunday.

Some areas are facing the problem of low gas pressure caused by increasing trend of using suction pumps/compressors, he added. In order to provide gas to all the domestic consumers, he said, the SNGPL vigilance teams had taken strict action on consumers using gas suction devices/compressors.
