The government is setting up over sixty Liquefied Petroleum Gas air mix plants in areas, where natural gas supply has not reached.

According to APP, Sui Northern Gas Pipeline Limited and Sui Southern Gas Company Limited would establish plants in far flung areas at an estimated cost of over thirteen hundred million rupees.

The companies would set up thirty air mix plants each on their respective transmission network in the areas of Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Chitral, Gilgit-Baltistan and backward areas of Balochistan.

The setting up of the LPG-air mix plants would save these areas from the rapid deforestation due to use of trees as firewood.
