SNGPL removes 40 gas meters of domestic consumers

Rawalpindi
During the operation in different localities of Rawalpindi region Sui Northern Gas Pipeline (SNGPL) Rawalpindi region has removed 40 gas meters of domestic consumers who were using illegal gas compressors to increase gas pressure in their houses.
Shahid Akram spokesperson for SNGPL Rawalpindi region while talking to ‘The News’ said that SNGPL has started operation and removing compressors from the houses after receiving number of complaints of low gas pressure and in some cases complete closure of gas in some of the areas.
He said SNGPL has decided not only removing meters of violators but also registering FIRs against domestic consumers who are using illegal gas compressors inside their homes. “Use of compressors and generators on connection of gas is not only illegal, but also very dangerous for the houses,” he added.
Shahid Akram told that they have requested the local administration to launch operation against shopkeepers who are selling gas compressors in open market.
“Problem of low gas pressure will remain same until domestic consumers stop using illegal gas compressors,” he said.
He further said that SNGPL can only remove gas meters as punishment of illegal use of compressor but they cannot lunch operation against shopkeepers who are selling this item, as this is the responsibility of local government to stop sale of compressor in the open market.
Shahid said that they have written letters and giving reminders time and again to the local government to stop sale of illegal gas compressors.
He said gas consumers who are facing problem of low gas pressure should register complaints in SNGPL offices and department representatives will come for inspection there might be chances that their neighbor are using illegal gas compressors.
