KARACHI (TLTP): All the compressed natural gas (CNG) stations across Sindh will remain closed from 72 hours from Monday morning to Thursday morning.

A spokesperson for the Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) said that gas filling stations will remain shut for 72 hours from 8:00am on Monday till 8:00am on Thursday (February 4) across the province. A notification regarding CNG stations closure has been issued.

The country faces a shortfall of gas in winter, forcing the government to cut gas supply to CNG stations and industries while domestic consumers are supplied gas on priority.
