Written by darling on August 29, 2019
The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) says it has sealed 12 petrol stations in Taraba State for none compliance to its rules of operation.
The Operations Controller, Jalingo field office, Mr Jeremiah Mashat, disclosed this on Wednesday.
According to him, some of the stations were guilty of under-dispensing the product and selling higher than the actual price.
Meanwhile, he also stated that the agency has granted site clearance for two locations for the installations of Liquefied Petroleum Gas plants in the state.
According to Mashat, the exercise is the first of its kind since the establishment of their office accommodation in Jalingo, in April 2019.
Before now, they usually come from Yola, the Adamawa State capital, to check client compliance, quality, quantity, price enforcement and operational safety as well as licencing of the facilities.
Mashat also disclosed that their campaign is not restricted to only filling stations but will soon extend to Gas retailers.
“We are going to extend our surveillance to the nooks and crannies of Taraba to ensure that Taraba State citizens feel our presence in the state,” he said.
