ISLAMABAD: The Ministry of Energy (MoE) is determined to get the government’s permission to use gas in the transport sector despite fears of regulator protection over fuel supply.
Sources said that the Petroleum Division has already prepared a summary for the approval of the Cabinet Economic Co-ordination Committee for Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) licenses based on flammable gas, which refers to various processes including oil and It is a matter of combustion of the gas produced. Gas recovery
However, the Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) has already objected to the use of gas in the CNG / Transport sector, as it is technically inconsistent with the standard of legal barriers, which “protect public life and safety.” There is a serious threat, ”OGRA said in a letter to the Petroleum Division.
“OGRA has already conveyed to the Ministry of Energy (Petroleum Division) the legal and factual position which is reflected in paragraph 4 of the draft summary,” OGRA said in a letter available with The News. And its compression does not cover the CNG Rules 1992 in the oil and gas field.
OGRA further said that the guidelines for the use of flammable gas are not 201 conditions where only the supply of gas to the CNG station is essential. Paragraph 3 of the draft summary is self-contradictory as it suggests that waste gas should be used optimally in the field of transportation from remote gas reserves while at the same time announcing that industrial base gas reserves Are not located near so there may be such gas. Not to be supplied to industrial units.
The regulator said that there is no regulatory requirement to sell flammable gas as CNG, so it cannot be used / permitted in the CNG sector.
Flare gas is irrational gas and there is no mechanism available to bring it to the specification either in the well / field or at the CNG station.
Two flared gas licenses. And E-Gas Pvt. Ltd. has detected unreasonable gas supply and the outbreak has been stopped for gas supply.
“This fact is supported by the fear that the specifications of such flammable gases vary considerably and thus cannot be tested all the time. Flammable gas can be used in gas installations to sweeten gas and to reduce water shortages.” The mechanism is not available, OGRA said, adding that there is no mechanism available at the site of flammable gas installations or CNG stations (sites) to ensure collection of data on gas formation, such as pipelines. In the case of gas suppliers.
Off-space flares at CNG stations would mean compromising the integrity of CNG stations as well as CNG equipment in CNG-converted automobiles / cylinders that could endanger the lives and property of ordinary people. Will Such a supply of gas can weaken CNG cylinders on CNG stations and vehicles and lead to accidents. The result of supplying unspecified gas to CNG vehicle owners will go beyond imagination and control and lead to serious safety precautions. As far as public safety is concerned, so far no such experience has been cheap regarding the illegal treatment / conduct of torch gas licenses, as they are still supplying such gas to CNG stations.
