Balochistan allowed to use Iranian gas

ISLAMABAD: The federal government has accorded special permission to Balochistan to use the gas which is to be imported from Iran under the pipeline project for domestic purpose.

Such permission has not been given to any other province. This was disclosed by the additional secretary of petroleum ministry in the meeting of parliamentary committee for petroleum.

It had earlier been decided at a high level meeting that the imported gas would be used for industrial purpose only and domestic consumers would not be allowed to avail this facility.

However, under the directives of the chief minister of Balochistan a major chunk of this imported gas would be provided to the cities of the province.

The price of the gas for domestic consumers would be determined later.

Ministry of petroleum sources said that Pakistan, Iran gas pipeline project would cost $3- 4 billion and the project would be completed within four years.

Members of the committee also raised the issue of inflated bills saying an FIR should be registered against Sui Northern Gas Company for overcharging the consumers.— DawnNews
