DPR WARNS LPG PLANTS IN AKWA IBOM TO OBSERVE STANDARDS

The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) in Akwa Ibom has warned Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) refilling plants to adhere to approved project design in the state.

The Operations Controller of DPR, Mr. Tamunoiminabo Kingsley-Sundaye gave the warning in an interview with the newsmen in Eket Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom on Friday.

He observed that five LPG refilling plants under construction had deviated from the approved standard and substituted them with designs that negate the standard and guidelines of such projects.

“We are reassessing LPG refilling plants that are under construction to see if they are building in accordance with the approved design for them.

“Unfortunately we observed that five of those LPG refilling plants are building the plants against the approved design.

“What these people do is that when they are constructing LPG refilling plants, they place the critical units such as vessel, pumphouse, discounting, packing areas among others wrongly.

“In constructing gas design, the tank must be at 15 meters distance to both sides of the land, especially the discounting must be at the center of the land.

“If there are issues of either explosion or fire incident, it can be curtailed within the owner’s facility and the impact on the third party must be minimized,” he said.

The operations controller said that the importance of the critical units was for the safety and efficiency of the plants.

He added that the DPR promised to adhere to standards and guidelines in order to guide against incidents in the future.

Kingsley-Sunday advised the proponents to follow standards and guidelines for the construction of LPG refilling plants and also ensure that throughout the construction stages, the approved design was adhered to.
