New rules on cooking gas distribution in Dubai


DUBAI – Authorities have issued new rules on cooking gas or LPG cylinder tanks distributed in Dubai to weed out illegal dealers in the emirate.

Under the new rules, the LPG cylinders cannot be distributed in the emirate unless they are filled in approved LPG factories in the emirate.

The latest directive was issued by Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy (DSCE).

According to DSCE, companies must have authorization from Dubai authorities on filling LPG cylinder tanks and distributing them in the emirate.

“We aim to ensure transportation, storage and distribution of LPG according to the approved criteria in the UAE,” said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Vice Chairman of the DSCE.

Authorities will be conducting inspections to ensure that the directive is followed and that the highest safety and security standards are applied.
