CNG Prices in Pakistan - CNG prices are updated every month by OGRA-Oil & Gas Regulatory Authority of Pakistan. CNG prices are causes major impact on Pakistan's economy and it is directly effects on general public. The CNG prices are a huge concern for millions of people in Pakistan as the major chunk of vehicles use gas to be driven on the roads. The compressed natural gas is used throughout the country in the major traffics because it provides better cost average than gasoline and diesel. It is also cheaper in price than that of gasoline and diesel fuels.

Comments
Warning signal: Existing infrastructure may not sustain gas imports. Pakistan may not be able to import gas from Iran despite a nuclear deal between Tehran and Washington that has renewed hopes for improved economic ties between the neighbouring countries, a business leader said on Monday. “Iran has completed its part of the pipeline for transporting 750 million cubic feet of gas per day (mmcfd) and Pakistan has also started work on laying the pipeline over 880 km. However, it has not considered upgrading the gas distribution network,” said Ghiyas Abdullah Paracha, central leader of the All Pakistan CNG Association.

Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) supply has been suspended to various cities of Punjab including Islamabad for two days, Dunya News reported on Tuesday. As per details, the suspension was made due to non-clearance of LNG cargo at Karachi seaport. On the other hand, Chairman of All Pakistan CNG Association urged the government to clear the cargo as early as possible to avoid further delay in CNG supply.

The RLNG supply, to CNG stations, is once again marred by a snag as the Port Qasim Authority has delayed the issuance of clearance to vessel carrying the LNG, and gas supply to the gas stations across Punjab has been brought to a grinding halt. The LNG carrying vessel Magnum Spirit carrying LNG arrived at outer anchorage of Port Qasim on July 27 but due to technical hurdles created by the mismanagement of the Port Qasim Authority and Pakistan State Oil did not get its clearance hitherto, it is learnt reliably here. Earlier, it was the PSO issue of money with the IPPs, which forced the CNG stations to remain closed for about 16 days and now the issue of mismanagement at Port Qasim has once again caused the closure of the CNG stations across Punjab and Islamabad for next couple of days, said an office bearer of the All Pakistan CNG Association (APCNGA). The PSO is government organisation and is facing mismanagement problems otherwise no private vessel is facing such delays on the port, said an office bearer of the CNG association. The Port Qasim Authority is charging million dollars per LNG vessel, which is the highest in the world, and even then the PSO cannot capitalise on such a big amount and its shipment is facing a delay, he said. The PSO could have received the clearness in advance as they were well aware about the arrival of their shipment.

The government is likely to deregulate the CNG sector and its consumer pricing, free from the Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority’s (Ogra) regulation, it is learnt here Monday. An official source told The Nation that the government has moved a summary in this regard seeking views of the OGRA and Planning Commission on this count. The move ,to take away the CNG sector from Ogra’s regulation, which according to some experts is going to hurt the consumers in long run and leave them at the mercy of CNG owners. Besides, the absence of regulation will bring a lot of litigation in future, the expert maintained. The OGRA in its comments has asked the government to clarify, the ambiguity, whether it wants to deregulate only RLNG or the complete CNG sector, the official said. In OGRA view no sector can be partially regulated or deregulated, there can be either total regulation or total deregulation, the official added. However, the source in the ministry of Petroleum and Natural Resources claimed that the government wants to deregulate the complete CNG sector and also its consumer pricing. One of the reasons according to the official is the government failure to complete the quorum of OGRA which is adversely affecting the CNG sector and its consumer pricing.

Aiming to import liquefied natural gas (LNG) from China, Pakistan has started construction of its seven hundred-kilometer pipeline, Radio Pakistan reported. Minister of Petroleum and Natural Resources Shahid Khaqan Abbasi while addressing the media, stated that the project will be jointly funded by Pakistan and China. “Chinese funds will benefit Pakistan and allow it to complete its Iran-Pakistan Gas Pipeline project,” Abbasi added. According to Abbasi, Pakistan has been trying to overcome its energy crisis by importing gas from Iran however, sanctions on Iran had hampered the work on the project. Further stating that Gwadar port being the central hub for China Pakistan Economic Corridor, will allow Western China to gain access to warm waters.

CNG and LNG; Please move CNG in right direction first, then move on another projects, Deepening partnership: Pakistan looks to Russia for satiating energy demand. In an effort to meet the burgeoning demand for electricity and gas, the government has found a new partner – the energy-rich Russia that has vast reserves of oil and natural gas. The energy projects agreed as part of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), however, have become encouraging and may be executed on a fast track. Now that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is going to Moscow on July 9, Pakistan is likely to sign a $2-billion energy deal with Russia for laying a liquefied natural gas (LNG) pipeline from Karachi to Lahore, officials say. However, the partnership may spark angry reaction from India.

With the resumption of gas supply to compressed natural gas (CNG) filling stations in Punjab after import of liquefied natural gas (LNG), the Italian government has called on Pakistan to abolish the duty on import of parts for CNG cylinders and kits. The government had imposed 20% duty on the import of parts in last year’s budget, which upset Italy-based multinational company Landi Renzo that had been installing CNG cylinders and kits in locally manufactured vehicles. The duty has been kept unchanged in the new budget as well. s estimated at €7.7 million. Apart from catering to the domestic market, the company exports its kits to Brazil, China, Iran and Italy with export volume standing at €3.7 million.

The gas supply-demand gap has reached 4 Billion Cubic Feet per Day (BCFD) as total gas demand of the country is 8 BCFD against total supply of 4 BCFD, reveals Economic Survey of Pakistan. According to Economic Survey of Pakistan (2014-15) the gap started widening when gas being cheaper was substituted for oil due to the political will, adding new consumers on account of annual development schemes. The survey revealed that during July 2014 to February 2015, the two Gas utility companies (SNGPL & SSGCL) have laid 72 km gas transmission network, 1,040 km distribution and 758 km service lines and connected 59 villages/towns to gas network. Thus a total 206,473 additional gas connections including 206,127 domestic, 249 commercial and 97 industrial were provided across the country. It is expected that gas will be supplied to approximately 419,445 new consumers during the fiscal year 2015-16. It said constrained natural gas demand stands at 6 BCFD against supply of 4 BCFD while the unconstrained demand for gas is estimated to be 8 BCFD or more than double the current domestic production. One risk associated with this sector is that there is continuous depletion of existing natural gas fields while the pace of new gas discoveries is quite slow. The government is pursuing its policies of enhancing gas production to meet the increasing demand of energy in the country. Still for supply of gas, the government has given priority to domestic and commercial sectors followed by power sector while general industry, fertilizer and captive power sectors is on third priority. Cement and CNG sector are respectively on fourth and fifth priority of the government for supply of gas. There is no gas load shedding in domestic and commercial sectors in the country. However, the Sindh and Peshawar High Courts have directed the federal government to adhere to the provision of Article 158 of the Constitution therefore the gas load management is mostly restricted to Punjab Province as its share in gas supply is about 5 percent while it has a share of almost 46 percent of national gas consumption. The worrisome factor is that Pakistan's local gas reserves are depleting and if gas consumption grows annually even at moderate rates, the present recoverable reserve will largely be exhausted by 2025. As this limit approaches the marginal cost of gas supply will rise. The government promoted use of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) to reduce pollution and to improve the ambient air quality. During past few years, CNG Industry has observed a tremendous growth. At present, Pakistan is the world leading CNG user country with more than 3 million Natural Gas Vehicles (NGVs) plying on the roads. The choice of conversion is mainly due to the fact that price of CNG is significantly less than petrol. At present there are 3,414 CNG stations across the country. Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) contributes to about 0.5 percent of country's total primary energy supply mix. Use of LPG as a domestic fuel is being encouraged. Increasing demand of natural gas with its limited supply has made room for Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) which is also primary source of energy. The total supply of LPG during July-March, 2014-15 was 494,763 tones, accounted for about 0.5 percent of the total primary energy supply. Gas producing fields contributed 53 percent followed by refineries and imports with share of 26 percent and 21 percent respectively. Because of its characteristics LPG is fast becoming a fuel of choice in areas where natural gas distribution network is not available. The Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) is empowered to regulate the LPG sector under OGRA Ordinance, 2002 and LPG (Production & Distribution) Rules 2001 from March 15, 2003. The OGRA has simplified the procedure for grant of LPG license and the same is granted on fast track basis once the requirements are met. Currently there are 12 LPG producers and 97 LPG marketing companies operating in the country having more than 4,482 authorized distributors. Due to augmented investment and future expansion plans of the LPG marketing companies, significant investment in LPG supply and distribution infrastructure has been witnessed. The government has started importing Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) to bridge widening gap between demand and supply. Energy cost calculations clearly prove that RLNG is cheaper than ALL other imported fuels for power generation in Pakistan. On April 27, 2015, the delivered price for fuel to power plants in Northern Pakistan on equivalent basis was $11.5/MMBTU for LNG, $12.6/MMBTU for HSFO, $13.8/MMBTU for LSFO, and $22.8/MMBTU for Diesel. In this context, LNG with a notional Brent linkage of 14.5 percent is 10 percent cheaper than High Sulphur Furnace Oil (HSFO), 20 percent cheaper than Low Sulphur Furnace Oil (LSFO), and half the price of Diesel. In addition, as a fuel for power generation, LNG as compared to liquid fuels provides (i) substantially greater efficiency (ii) lower maintenance costs (iii) no storage costs (iv) easy transportation and (v) no pilferage or adulteration issues.

The government has passed on the full impact of gas theft to the compressed natural gas (CNG) industry that utilises imported liquefied natural gas (LNG). Petroleum Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi confirmed that the CNG sector will bear the burden. “When you put CNG stations in houses, then this is what happens,” Abbasi added. Presently, Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL) is recovering 11% of the unaccounted for gas (UFG) from consumers using imported LNG in CNG stations, said officials, adding that the current price of LNG for CNG industry is $12.5 per million British thermal units (mmbtu). The price includes the cost of LNG, 4% commission for Pakistan State Oil (PSO) and transportation charges of 57 cents per mmbtu to be given to the gas utility. Industry sources said that the petroleum ministry was going to seek a formal approval of the Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) that would allow the implementation of the schedule of charges. The CNG industry has also been allowed to deregulate prices at their stations. Under the deregulated mechanism, the Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (Ogra) will not intervene and the CNG industry would be free to set the price of LNG. The ECC has already allowed the regulator to set the price of LNG, following the pattern of other petroleum products. However, Ogra will be restrained from notifying prices of LNG for CNG stations following approval of the economic decision making body. Before 2008, price of gas for the CNG industry was deregulated before being controlled. However, the government now wants to revert to the deregulated regime. Industry sources have hailed the government’s decision, stating that deregulation would revive the CNG industry that has long suffered due to gas shortage. They added that the price of LNG for CNG stations was still lower compared to petrol. The government had earlier announced that it would re-open CNG stations from May 29 till June 6 without any break. SNGPL officials said that 200 CNG stations had re-opened after depositing their arrears. They said the process would continue as long as stations clear their dues.

CNG has also gone missing in Punjab after electricity. CNG stations will remain closed for 5 and half hours daily under the new schedule issued on Friday by Sui Northern Gas Pipelines. The stations will not be providing CNG during the Sehr and Iftar hours, reported Dunya News. According to the details, the CNG will not be available at the stations from 2 am to 3.30 am and from 4 pm to 8 pm. Sui Northern had collected Rs. 1,200,000 as additional security fee from the CNG stations only a few days back but after increase in demand on the first day of Ramazan, CNG supply has been affected.

One new I want to share all, Mere months after the severe fuel crisis of January 2015, the Punjab and parts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa are experiencing a major fuel shortage again. To make matters worse, prices of all the petroleum products except high-speed diesel are expected to increase from July 1, 2015, according to official sources, petrol price is going to increase by Rs 3.06 per liter. In view of this Khawaja Atif, general secretary of the Pakistan Petroleum Dealers Association (PPDA), blames the OMCs, including Pakistan State Oil, for rationing petroleum and not releasing supplies according to the demand, therefore creating a shortage of fuel. OGRA has been blamed for issuing excess licenses to new OMCs last year, while others blame the conflict over freight shipping rates between the PSO and Pakistan National Shipping Corporation. Due to this mismanagement and the lack of stricter regulation of the OMCs, the citizens continue to suffer in Ramazan with hours of load shedding and now a fuel shortage that could mean days of unproductivity on end. The slight respite from the situation that consumers received was the news of CNG stations reopening all over Punjab after a long gap of eight months. This would have been positive news for masses as CNG is cheaper and a cleaner fuel to consume, if only the cost had not been increased by almost 25 percent. A medium sized CNG cylinder that cost Rs 600 to fill up now costs around Rs 750. The Liquefied Petroleum Gas Association (LPGA) has blamed the Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) for making a hefty increase in the imported LPG prices and termed it an “anti-masses decision”. The actual problem comes down to accountability. Where there are so many independent bodies in control of the regulation and distribution of resources such as Fuel, Gas and Power, stricter measures have to be taken to hold them accountable. This game of blaming the other and escaping the heat temporarily has to end. The government has failed on many platforms to resolve this ongoing crisis. Instead of focusing on long term goals like investing in and developing renewable energy resources, all we see is the shift of dependency from oil to gas and short term quick fixes like importing LNG from the Middle East.
Khawaja Abdul Majeed Mon 22 Jun, 2015

The Ministry of Petroleum and Gas has decided to raise prices of natural gas from July 1. A source in the ministry said that the gas prices could go up after the gas infrastructure bill was approved. The gas prices are likely to scale up by 53 per cent for industrial consumers, 18 per cent for commercial consumers and 64 per cent for fertilizers factories. The source said that the price of CNG is also likely to rise by 25 per cent after the bill was approved.
Umer Lakhani Mon 22 Jun, 2015

CNG prices should be deceased more, not enough remain unchanged, Petrol and diesel usually utilize common persons, I want to asked Government why Petrol and Diesel prices are same to all, it should be categorically distributed among common man and industrial use.

Today is CNG stations are closed in Karachi, nice and timely updated. Keep it up
Jibran Atta Sat 13 Jun, 2015

Why SSGC - Sui Southern Gas Company Limited change schedule after one, usually once or twice in a month SSGC keeps revised weekly CNG stations shutdown schedule, it should not be done, because most public who travel in local or public transport are disturbed badly, and also SSGC increased schedule days in this regards.
