Islamabad, Jan. 09 (TNS): Ministry of Petroleum says the repair work on the 36 inch diameter Gas Pipeline that ruptured early on Wednesday morning near Sadiqabad city is expected to be completed by midnight.

The Ministry said to meet the domestic gas requirements the supply of gas to industries in Punjab province has been discontinued for some time.
