NLPGA Seeks Greater Enforcement of Standards Following Recent Gas Explosion

Against the backdrop of the gas explosion in Nasarawa State on Monday, the Nigeria Liquefied Petroleum Gas Association has highlighted the need for greater enforcement of Liquefied Petroleum Gas standards and code of practice within the industry across the country.

“Without this, the proliferation of substandard and undocumented gas facilities/infrastructure will remain a recurrent issue, which ultimately undermines the efforts of law abiding industry practitioners,” the President, NLPGA, Mr Nuhu Yakubu, said in a statement on Wednesday.

The association said its governing council and members were saddened by the explosion, adding that it had in recent times collaborated with the regulatory agencies such as Standards Organisation of Nigeria and the Department of Petroleum Resources to draft and develop processes and procedures “to ensure that best practices are upheld within the industry to ensure the safety of lives and property.”
