DPR Seals Seven (7) Gas Stations In Rivers State


The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) has shut down 10 filling stations operating illegally and  sealed seven Gas stations and under-dispensing petroleum products in Rivers State.

Speaking with journalists shortly after sealing the gas outlets, Bassey Nkanga,  the Operations Controller of Port Harcourt DPR Zonal Office, said that the agency has commenced a clampdown on illegal operators and dealers of cooking gas across the state.

He added that, the illegal dealers have been engaged in recent past on the need to adopt legal means and apply safety precautions in their activities but that they had refused to heed the appeals.

He further explicates that the department has engaged the LPG plant owners not to sell gas to retailers that do not possess valid licenses to avoid ugly incidents of fire explosions.
