CNG Load shedding continues even in off peak season in Pakistan, who is responsible

Published on

cars queue for cng in pakistanAs 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.

CNG price reduced by 31 Rupees in Pakistan on Supreme Court order

Published on

Supreme court ordered that CNG price must be reduced by 30 rupees and 90 paisas. Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) have already followed the Supreme court orders and already issued the notification to reduce the CNG price by 30 rupees and 90 paisas. Also due to Eid-Al-Adha their would be no CNG Load Shedding in Islamabad Region.

After reduction of 30 rupees and 90 paisas new price of CNG is set to 61 rupees and 64 paisas. Previously the CNG was being sold at Rs. 92.54 where as per kilogram cost of CNG was less than half of the previous listed price.

Hilarious decrease in price of CNG

Published on

As recently Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) had increased the price of CNG by Rs. 8 on December 30th 2011.  That triggered the strike from the CNG association as well as from the pubic transport unions. One other reason was closure of CNG for more than half a week each week so public transporters were not being able to get tanks filled.

Yesterday after success of the dialog between CNG Association/Transporters and OGRA, OGRA with other measures taken also had told transporters/CNG Association that they will decrease the price soon.

Today this hilarious decision came from OGRA, which is that price of CNG have been decreased 36 Paisas.  As just few days back the price was increased by 8 Rs, decrease of 36 Paisas is only  4,5% of recent increase and is less than 0.5 percent of price of CNG.

This price decrease of 0.36 Paisas is like current government is kidding their people by putting OGRA in front. Also no justification was given about why per KG price is increased by 8 Rs and why its decreased by only 4.5 Paisas.
