The notification issued by Sui Southern Gas Company mentions that only specific CNG stations will be open for public transport. The reason this decision has been taken is because of the maintenance work at Regasified to Natural Gas (RLNG) terminal. This was informed by the SSGC Lahore General Manager Qaiser Masood.
