OGRA lauded for crackdown on factories producing substandard LPG equipment

Staff Reporter

Liquefied Petroleum Gas Distributors Association (LPGDA) Chairman Irfan Khokhar has appreciated OGRA for launching an effective crackdown against the factories producing illegal and substandard LPG cylinders, bowsers and other equipment.

Talking to APP, he said, the OGRA team in collaboration with district management had recently seized around 10 substandard browsers from a factory operating at the Lahore Ring road.

He termed the operation ‘historic’ and ‘successful’ as the unearthing of such illegal factories were putting life and property of the public at risk for their monetary gains.

Khokhar said the sealed factory was operating without the Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) licence and other requirements.

He said the LPG industry was flourishing in the country due to the remedial measures taken by the incumbent government, under the visionary leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan.

According to an official document available with APP, Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) issued around 36 licences, during a nine-month period from July-March 2021, aimed at promoting the LPG sector and ensuring the provision of environment-friendly fuel across the country especially in far-flung areas at controlled rates throughout the year.
