Petrobangla will hold a meeting with CNG station owners on Tuesday to take a decision on the issue

Authorities have put off a decision to keep CNG re-fuelling stations closed every day during 5pm to 11pm peak hours of electricity supply from September 15.

“We have suspended the decision until further notice and asked the Petrobangla to discuss the issue with stakeholders, especially CNG station owners, to take the decision,” State Minister for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Nasrul Hamid told UNB in the evening.  

Earlier a meeting resolution, distributed by the ministry’s Public Relation Officer Aslam Alam, said the CNG re-fuelling stations will remain shut from 5pm to 11pm from September 15.

He said the state-owned Petrobangla took the decision following a resolution made in a virtual meeting of the Ministry of Power, Energy and Mineral Resources on July 19 this year.

The meeting was presided over by Nasrul Hamid and attended by the prime minister’s energy advisor, said a letter of the ministry.

Official sources said the move came against the backdrop of the government’s decision to operate gas-fired power plants to generate electricity.

Meanwhile, a press release of the ministry issued in the evening said Petrobangla will hold a meeting with CNG station owners on Tuesday to take a decision on the issue.
