Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL) has recently concluded its strategy to extend gas connections to more than 100 prominent housing societies. According to sources familiar with the matter, this plan was finalized by SNGPL under the directives of the Prime Minister Secretariat.

It’s reported that the caretaker government has set its sights on reinstating closed gas connections for residential consumers, particularly targeting these 100 housing societies initially. Authorities concerned have apparently completed the necessary groundwork to facilitate this endeavor.

As per the proposed plan, these housing societies will receive LNG supply at a fixed rate of Rs. 3,600 per MMBTU. It’s worth noting that the regular domestic consumers are being charged a maximum gas rate of Rs. 4,000 per MMBTU.

The decision to provide gas connections to these housing societies is believed to align with directives from the SIFC (Special Implementation and Facilitation Cell). Amid gas shortages, the government has resorted to blending gas and RLNG (Regasified Liquefied Natural Gas) for domestic consumers, leading to an observable increase in gas prices.
