Moreover; he intended that without consultation of provinces in proposed tariff regime provinces are sidelined which is not fruitions for all. The same situation might yield further serious reservations and inefficient gas use. Similarly, CEO argued that provinces should have proper representation in Working Group Third Party Access Rules draft 2017 and Tariff Regime.
