Another Sudden Change in CNG Load Shedding Schedule in Islamabad, Rawalpindi and Rest of Potohar Region
Previously CNG association of Pakistan had changed the CNG Load Shedding schedule in start of September but the have done it again recently. Recently a new schedule of load shedding was announced by Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL) and CNG association of Pakistan for Potohar region which includes the cities Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Attock, Wah, Jehlam, Chakwal and all areas around these cities.
According to the newly announced schedule the CNG stations will be closed on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. However, CNG will be available to the public on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Due to this sudden change lots of Vehicle owners and Motorists were unable to get CNG fuel last week on Monday, however it was available on Tuesday.
Due to these sudden changes without any announcement, the CNG filling stations owners were also in confusion and everyone was telling his own version of load shedding days. However, their is good chance that this week the things will settle down according to new schedule.
These sudden changes to CNG schedule without informing people must not be done, as they bring bigger irony for motorists with unavailability of fuel in days when transition is happening. However, what we liked about the new schedule is availability of fuel over the weekend. As previously, CNG was not available on Saturday, so it was great pain for people who used to go out of city or people who like to hang out on Saturday.
Lets hope that CNG filling stations owners stick to the newly announced schedule and don’t increase problems for people of Pakistan. Its merit mentioning here, that last week few CNG stations were also on strike due to some reasons about availability of Natural Gas from SNGPL, good news is that, this strike also over and all filling stations are now open for business.

As winters are long gone and we are well into the summer season. Which means the house hold demand of Natural Gas is at its lowest. On other hand CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) load management plan which was introduced in peak season is still applicable without any change. CNG which is environment friendly and is much cheaper than Petrol (Gasoline) and Diesel, and also is preference of most of vehicle owners in Pakistan.
But unfortunately due to the wrong policies of previous government, the whole future availability of CNG is in jeopardy. Even right now CNG is available to people of Pakistan only for four days in a week and despite the fact that the peak season of Natural Gas usage is gone and now pressures of Natural Gas are back high in burners of peoples’ kitchen even on days when gas is available for Vehicles still the care taker government is not opening it for vehicle owners on remaining 3 days.
CNG load shedding schedule In region comprised of Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Attock, Taxila, Wah and Chakwal is that CNG is opened from Monday Morning to Wednesday. Then its not available on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, so these are the off days.
Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) during these previous five years in government, have done the most of damage to the CNG sector. As care taker government took over, irony still continuous. But one can understand, the Zardari who is chairperson of PPP is still president of country as very head for elections for the Parliament Members and Prime minister.
There is a hope now and that only belongs to the times coming after 11 May, 2013. That is also if people of Pakistan decide to go out on 11 May and vote the right person, some new face on that 11 May, 2013.
May Allah bless Pakistan and put an end to problems of people of Pakistan.
