Liquefied Petroleum Gas Association urges government to bring down input cost of local producers

Lahore, August 25, 2015 (PPI-OT): LPG Association of Pakistan has demanded of the government to bring down the input cost of the local LPG producers who are suffering hard due to import and smuggling of adulterated and dangerous LPG. In a statement issued here Tuesday, Chairman of the LPG Association of Pakistan Farooq Iftikhar said that local producers of LPG are in deep trouble because of high input cost while adulterated and dangerous LPG is being smuggled and sold openly.

Chairman LPGA said that LPG Association of Pakistan had for the last many months been calling on the concerned government circles to take measures for the promotion of alternate fuels like LPG that would certainly cut the burden on conventional fuel sector. He urged the government to bring down the LPG producer’s price through a policy framework in line with LPG Policy.

Mr. Farooq Iftikhar said that it was an ample proof of LPG Association of Pakistan’s commitment with the country that despite severe crisis of petrol in the country, sufficient LPG was available. LPGAP wants to emphasize on the Government that countries like Pakistan would be adversely affected if OPEC Countries reduce oil production, as such Government should encourage LPG as alternate fuel for the automobile sector on priority so that dependence on conventional fuel, like petrol and diesel is reduced.
