Balochistan, home to one of the largest gas reservoirs in the region, does not have supply of natural gas for fuel in 90% of the areas. Consumers instead use gas cylinders in homes for heating and cooking. Lack of regulations and checks on the industry has contributed in unsafe cylinders being used across Balochistan resulting in deaths and injuries through several incidents.
