SNGPL disconnects gas connections for illegal compressor use


Special Task Force of Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL) on Monday launched a crackdown against users of illegal compressors in the Islamabad Region, who were involved in depriving other consumers of gas in the peak winter season and putting people’s lives at risk.

During the operation, SNGPL inspection teams visited different localities including Bhara Kahu, Taxila, Margalla Valley and Koth Hathia and disconnected more than 15 connections after they found the users involved in illegal activity of compressor installation. “The operation will continue unabated till bringing the illegal activity to a complete end,” spokesman for the SNGPL Islamabad Region Shahid Akram told a state run news agency.—NNI
