DPR begins licensing of cooking gas retailers

As part of measures to reduce frequent cases of cooking gas accidents, the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) has commenced the process of licensing cooking gas retailers.

The move, according to the President of Liquefied Petroleum Gas Retailers (LPGAR), Association, Mr. Michael Umudu, was also aimed at ridding the sector of quacks and unlicensed professionals.

Umudu stated this at a safety awareness campaign organised by the Lagos chapter of LPGAR in Lagos state. He said the high rate of cooking gas accidents across the country remained a cause for concern to the association, hence, the decision of the DPR.

Safety tips given to retailers during the training included how to transfer LPG from bigger cylinders to smaller ones, proper kits to use; checking expiring date of cylinders; how to check for leakages, and the consequences of not adhering to safety standards.
