EPRA exposes 9 facilities partaking in LPG malpractice

NAIROBI, Kenya, Jul 5- The Energy and Regulatory Petroleum Authority has exposed 9 facilities found undertaking illegal Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) activities in the country.

The regulator through a statement said the listing follows random surveillance and enforcement exercises it undertook between April and June 2021 with a view to enhancing consumer safety.

“Section 11 (e) of the Energy Act 2019 mandates EPRA to develop and enforce guidelines that ensure compliance with the Act and the licensing conditions stipulated in the Act,” wrote EPRA.

“Further, the Petroleum Act 2019 and the Petroleum (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) Regulations 2019 require persons to undertake the business of LPG in accordance with the terms and conditions of their valid licenses issued by the Authority,” it added.

The nine non-compliant facilities are City Gas Limited, Green Energy Limited, More Gas Limited, Eco-Energy Limited, Topline Traders Limited, Salama Gas Limited, Valley Gas Limited, Moto Gas Limited and Kofurow Gas Limited.

The Authority has urged the public to report suspected cases of illegal LPG trade through the hotline number 0709 336 000 which is operational during official working hours.
