Residents of Ambala City and Thanesar in Kurukshetra districts are set to get the double benefit of piped natural gas (PNG) and compressed natural gas (CNG). The work to lay the PNG pipeline has already begun in the two cities, while 12 petrol pumps (six each in the two districts) have been identified that will supply CNG.
Jugesh Kumar, project in-charge of the city gas station project, said: “The PNG is more economical compared with the LPG and it will reduce the burden on gas agencies. Another benefit is it will be readily available and the bill will be raised on the basis of the usage. The customer can track the usage in a meter, which will be installed in every household. It is cheaper than the LPG and safer as well.”
As for the CNG pipeline, he said a station was being built in Ambala’s Jalbera village, while the work to lay the pipeline had started in Sectors 10, 9, 8 and 7 of Ambala City. Read more
