DPR seals 86 illegal gas plants in Lagos in 2020

The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) says it shutdown 86 cooking gas plants in Lagos State in 2020 for operating illegally.

According to Paul Osu, Head, Public Affairs, DPR, who  made this known in a statement issued on Wednesday in Lagos, said the gas dispensing plants were shut down for non-compliance with international safety standards.

According to him, the plants were also operating without prerequisite approval or licence from the DPR the regulatory agency.

Osu said some of the sealed plants were operating under high tension electrical installations and other unapproved locations.

He noted that the move was aimed at reducing the occurrence of gas explosion and fire incidents in Lagos State.

Osu said the DPR would continue to clamp down on such illegal plants while at the same time sensitising the public on the need for safe usage and distribution of gas.
