National Assembly's Standing Committee on Petroleum and Natural Resources has recommended the Sui Northern Gas Company Limited to give two million new gas connections during the next two years.

The committee meeting, chaired by Chaudhry Bilal Ahmed Virk, appreciated Minister for Petroleum and Natural Resources Shahid Khaqan Abbasi for making untiring efforts to overcome the energy crisis.

Shahid Khaqan Abbasi informed the committee that the Sui Northern Gas Pipelines issued 1.5 million new connections since the PML-N government came into power in 2013.

He said with the import of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), the energy situation had improved across the country including in Punjab where 40 percent gas supply had reduced after the 18th constitutional amendment.
