Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL) (Urdu: سوئی ناردرن گیس پائپ لائن لمیٹڈ) was incorporated as a private limited Company in 1963 and later converted into a public limited company in January 1964 under the Indian Companies Act 1913 of British India, now The Companies Act 2017 of Pakistan, and is listed on the Pakistan Stock Exchange.[2][3]

SNGPL is the largest integrated gas company serving more than 7.22 million consumers in North Central Pakistan through an extensive network in Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Azad Jammu & Kashmir.

Main Transmissions regions of SNGPL are Faisalabad, Lahore, Multan, and Wah. The maximum diameter used in transmission Pipelines is round about 42 inches. Company has 16 distribution regions.

SNGPL takes gas in 2 ways. The first one is 'System Gas' and the second is 'RLNG'. In the case of System Gas, the gas obtained from local resources is about 750-800 mmcd. While in the case of RLNG (Re-gasified Liquified Natural gas), we import gas from foreign countries in the form of liquid in a closed container. Then we re-gasify it and convert this liquid into gas. Its quantity is about 100 mmcd.

The Company took over the existing Sui-Multan System with 217 miles (349 km) of 16 inches (410 mm) and 80 miles (130 km) of 10 inches (250 mm) diameter pipelines from Pakistan Industrial Development Corporation (PIDC) and Dhulian-Rawalpindi-Wah system with 82 miles (132 km) of 6 inches (150 mm) diameter pipeline from Attock Oil Company. The Company's commercial operations commenced by selling an average of 1.3 million cubic metres (47 million cubic feet) per day gas in two regions viz. Multan and Rawalpindi.[4]
