SNGPL to replace 11-inch pipeline from Khairpur Daha to Bahawalpur.
BAHAWALPUR -- Sui Northern Gas Pipeline Limited (SNGPL) Regional Manager Malik Bashir Ahmed Tuesday said long term steps are being taken to improve gas pressure across Bahawalpur division.
Talking to reporters, he said a project is underway to replace a 11-inch pipeline from Khairpur Daha to Bahawalpur with 16-inch. A huge amount would be spent on the 49-kilometre pipeline project and complaints of low pressure during the winter season would also be addressed, he added.
He said Ahmedpur Road Chowk Bhatta No1 to Model Town B, Model Town C to General Bus Stand 4-inch wide pipeline will be replaced with 8-inch line. On the replacing of the 4.5 kilometre long pipeline, around Rs80 million will be spent, he said.
Malik Bashir said with the change of the line, Shahdra, Kausar Colony, Model Town B, Model Town C and its adjoining areas will have sufficient pressure of gas. He said current pipeline with 4-inch of width was not enough for the needs, he said and added the project would start from December this year. The process of changing the pipelines throughout the city was in progress which would reduce the line losses and rectify the complaints of low pressure, he said.
He said replacing of pipelines in Model Town B had been completed. He further said bribe and intercession culture in SNGPL matters had been finished and now every task is being done on merit.
