Sindh govt turns down proposal for RLNG usage, demands natural gas

A meeting of Sindh Cabinet on Wednesday turned down a proposal of the use of the Re-gasified Liquefied Natural Gas (RLNG) in the province.

The provincial cabinet session chaired by Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, in a consensus decision said Sindh should be given its rightful share of the natural gas of its gas-fields and not the RLNG as being recommended.

Sindh Cabinet also approved granting the land to the gas company for laying pipeline in the province.

It is to be mentioned here that the Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) had sought government permission for laying a pipeline in Malir, Jamshoro and Thatta districts.

The opposition lawmakers of Sindh Assembly yesterday protested at the Chief Minister House in Karachi and submitted a memorandum, holding the PPP-led Sindh government responsible for the gas crisis and demanded the Right of Way for a new Sui Southern Gas Company pipeline.
