The Federal Government has recently commenced a clampdown on illegal roadside dealers of cooking gas, originally known as Liquefied Petroleum Gas, LPG in Lagos and Abuja.
The government had in May, said it has commenced a policy to remove ownership of Liquefied Petroleum Gas cylinders from consumers, while dealers would be barred from refilling gas cylinders by the roadside and other unauthorized places.
The policy, the government said, would require that the ownership of the cylinders rests solely with the dealers and distributors.
Officers of the Department of Petroleum Resources, DPR, in conjunction with the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, flagged off the enforcement in Abuja and environs, with the operations aimed at curbing the illegal activities of LPG retailers and skid operators, and five illegal operators were arrested.
Visiting Galadimawa, Lokogoma axis and other suburbs within the city, where the team clamped down on illegal operators found dispensing gas in very dangerous circumstances without the necessary safety precautions.
Head of Gas of the DPR, Engr. Umar Gwandu said most of the illegal outlets lacked basic and standard minimum requirements like fire extinguishers and detectors, water sprinkler, temperature gauge, pressure and volume gauge among others.
Speaking at one of the illegal outlets in Galadimawa, Gwandu said, “This place can easily explode if there is any spark. Even with a very tiny leakage, once there is a spark, this place is gone. We have come here several times as you can see from our seal. These people are not ready to comply. If there is any spark here this place can go up in flames in seconds.”
Some of the measures shared by the Department of Petroleum Resources include:
- Replace instead of repairing a faulty cylinder. It is unsafe to repair a faulty gas cylinder.
- Buy your gas cylinders from certified LPG plant.
- Exchange of empty gas cylinders with a full one is best practice instead of refiling from another cylinder
- If you are buying LPG cylinder, look for Nigerian Industrial Standard number on the body of the cylinder.
- Gas cylinders are to be kept outside or in an open and well-ventilated area.
Other safety tips to keep in mind include,
6. Keep empty cylinders away from full ones,
7. The LPG association of Safety south advises that you test any gas appliance for possible leaks by spraying a soap-water solution on all connections. Leaks will show in the form of bubbles and must be repaired immediately
8. Do not use aerosols or flammable, cleaning liquids or sprays close to the heater
