NPA to close down 35 more high-risk LPG stations nationwide
The National Petroleum Authority (NPA) says it has
identified 35 Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG)
outlets as high-risk and it is waiting to close
these stations down once they are out of stock.

These stations are in different part of the
country and were identified by officers of the NPA
who have been on a nationwide tour since Cabinent
ordered the clamp down of all non-complying refill

The Authority is also yet to lay it hands on the
final report of the Atomic Junction gas explosion,
which left seven dead and over 100 others injured,
to ascertain what caused the accident.

CEO of NPA, Hassan Tampuli Wednesday briefed
Parliaments Energy Committee on steps he has taken
since the unfortunate explosion.

“We have so far inspected 299 LPG stations across
the country; in Greater Accra we went to 67
outlets, Ashanti Region - 70, Volta - 58, Takoradi
- 64 and Tamale - 40.

“We have closed down 43 stations of the 299, 55
outlets although they were on the spot were not in
operation. We have also earmarked 35 outlets for
closure when their stock comes to manageable
levels,” he told the Committee.

According to him, 132 of the stations fully
complied adding 34 of the outlets to be shut down
have been reopened for operations.

Mr Tampuli said they will finish their compliance
audit in two weeks.

One issue which has been topical has been what
actually caused the explosion.

PRO of the Ghana National Fire Service, Billy
Anaglate earlier in the week told Joy News that
they have finished their investigations and
submitted their report to the Interior Minister.

He, however, declined to share what caused the
October 7 explosion.

Speaking to Joy News after the meeting with the
Energy Committee, Mr Tampuli disclosed that his
outfit is yet to lay its hand on the report.

“The Fire Service is supposed to do the final
report so we have to wait until they communicate
to us,” he said.
