 OGRA Bans Sale of Substandard LPG Cylinders Across Pakistan

LAHORE: The Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) has issued a ban on the sale and purchase of substandard LPG cylinders throughout Pakistan. In a notification, OGRA highlighted the dangers associated with refilling substandard LPG cylinders and issued notices to 313 LPG marketing companies and 19 cylinder-producing companies.

OGRA has cautioned LPG marketing companies against selling LPG to unauthorized distributors. The new Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) now mandate that only authorized distributors are permitted to sell and purchase LPG.

This decision comes in response to a surge in cylinder blast incidents, as OGRA aims to protect both lives and businesses.

On May 3, the price of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) in Quetta was reduced by Rs 20 per kilogram, bringing the price down from Rs 280 to Rs 260 per kilogram. This follows an earlier reduction of Rs 20 per kilogram, making the total price drop Rs 40 per kilogram over the past few weeks.
