OGRA warns of illegal usage of LPG

ISLAMABAD: Taking notice of the number of LPG cylinder-related blasts across the country, the Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (Ogra) has issued a warning against the illegal usage of the fuel.

To take provincial authorities on board, the regulator has written letters to formulate an action plan against violators. According to Ogra, installation of LPG cylinders on motorcycles, scooters and public service vehicles, which includes three-wheelers, buses, coaches and wagons, is not allowed for safety concerns.

As per the provisions of LPG policy and rules, 2001, emptying out the fuel at distributors’ premises, which is done without the requisite safety procedures, is an illegal activity and one cause behind the accidents.
