ISLAMABAD - The Compressed Natural Gas(CNG) filling stations are witnessing long ques of vehicles these days as the fuel has turned into a rare commodity. A few filling stations of the twin cities of Islamabad and Rawalpindi are providing CNG while others are lying closed following suspension of gas supply as a result of the government’s decision to this effect.Meanwhile, the All Pakistan CNG Association (APCNGA) has rejected the decision of the Economic Coordination Committee of the Cabinet to keep CNG sector at the bottom of the priority list. Ghiyas Abdullah Paracha, Chairman Supreme Council APCNGA said the decision was unacceptable and would be challenged at all forums. He said the least priority to the CNG sector meant that general public would continue to wait for hours in long queues to get CNG. He said such steps also risked investments to the tune of Rs 400 billion in the CNG sector and future of 3.5 million people who were running their vehicles on the economical fuel.He said that CNG sector had no option to run their business with natural gas while other sectors had other options.While masses have stressed the need for resolving the CNG issue and to remove the prevailing confusion as some filling stations are providing the fuel while the rest are closed, leading to long queues.An official of the ministry of petroleum and natural resources told APP the government will decide on opening gas supply to CNG sector after reviewing demand and supply situation of the domestic sector.The official added, the government was according priority to domestic sector and did not want it affected with any adverse decision.As regards the prospects of oil and gas exploration in the country, he pointed out that Pakistan is endowed with vast sedimentary area of over 800,000 square kilometers of which over 70 percent is yet to be explored. The success ratio of oil and gas discoveries is one of the best in the world as is evident from the success ratio of 1: 3.22 discovery rate.
