In order to overcome the UFG (Unaccounted for Gas) losses in the southern districts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the Sui Northern Gas Pipeline Limited has planned a project to expand and rehabilitate its legal network under 14 sales meter stations which will include laying of a gas network in villages of Karak, Kohat and Hangu districts and rehabilitation of the existing network.
“The total distribution network would be 2,677kms and the total cost of the project would be Rs9 billion,” according to a statement issued by SNGPL. “In the first phase, the company would lay approximately 512km network which would cover 48 villages under SMS’s Chokara, Karak, Shakardara and Hangu with total perspective consumers of around 19,000.”
The physical work would commence after its formal inauguration by KP chief minister and federal petroleum minister on 4th Jan. Successful completion of the first phase will decide the completion of remaining project.
