Residential PNG FAQ
Yes, Piped Natural Gas (PNG) is definitely a better fuel for your kitchen, then LPG. PNG gives you the advantage of an uninterrupted supply, saves you from the effort of booking a refill or changing cylinders, and helps you enjoy more kitchen space, as PNG reaches you through pipelines. Moreover, no pilferage is experienced in case of PNG, as the invoicing is done for the exact quantity of PNG utilized by the customer as per the meter reading.
The supply is absolutely regular. The pipeline distribution network is based on an on-line supply system which consists of safety valves and regulators that control and monitor the gas supply and pressure, and assist in identifying system leaks. Thus, an uninterrupted supply at requisite pressure is provided
- What changes are required for conversion of an LPG appliance to be PNG friendly? Is any change in the burner needed?
To convert an existing LPG appliance to run on PNG, the jet of the burner needs to be changed, which is done by trained technicians of the gas company or gas equipment supplier. After this small modification of the burner, the cooking appliance running on LPG can work on PNG, smoothly.
Ministry of petroleum and natural gas has decided to allow PNG connection holders to keep one LPG connection in their household and permit public sector Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) to supply LPG at non-subsidized rate. In this regard the Liquefied Petroleum Gas (Regulation of Supply and Distribution) order, 2000, has accordingly been amended and notification has been issued vide G.S.R. No. 781 (E) dated 16.12.2013.
