DPR shuts 19 Skid gas plants over poor safety standards in Ogun

The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), Abeokuta Field Office, has shut down 19 Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) and skid plants in Ogun State over their breaches to safety standards and operating without approval.

Operation Controller of DPR, Abeokuta Field Office, Muinat Bello-Zagi, stated this on Monday in Abeokuta at a meeting with the leadership and members of LPG Skid Owners Association, Ogun State chapter.

DPR said the raid was carried out after weeks of safety surveillance of LPG and skid plants in Mowe, Magboro, Abeokuta, Sagamu, Isheri-Olofin and Ijebu-Ode.

Bello-Zagi said the DPR would continue to engage gas plant operators in the state on the importance of following standard operating procedures in the business of dispensing cooking gas.
