LNG consumption under conversion of CNG stations | The Express Tribune
Experts have praised the government’s move to promote the use of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in vehicles in place of compressed natural gas (CNG). Aslam Khan, chairman of Pakistan Economy Watch, said in a statement on Saturday that work was underway to convert CNG stations to RLNG and that the filling stations would not receive natural gas in future. “Instead, CNG stations will use imported LNG, which will eliminate gas shortages for vehicles during the winter,” he said. Khan said the move would reduce the oil import bill by about 20% as well as help in controlling environmental pollution and transport fares. Khan said that imported LNG would be around 20-25% cheaper than petrol, which would bring relief to millions of people involved in the transport sector and passengers.
