Use of LPG grows over 21pc since 2009

Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry has identified 12 points for ensuring safe use of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), as the growth of LPG use rose to over 21 percent since 2009 in the country.

“The government is committed to ensure safe use of LPG cylinders across the country and working to create awareness among the users to this end,” Energy and Mineral Resources Division Secretary Abu Hena M Rahmatul Munim told newsmen at a press briefing at his ministry conference room on Thursday.

He said the country’s LPG use rose to around 10 lakh tonnes in 2018, which was only 47,000 tonnes in 2009 and now the demand for LPG rose to 30 lakh tonnes.

The secretary said the demand for LPG increased due to the government’s realistic steps including availability of LPG at every corner of the country, adding, “We are working to create awareness among the users and strengthen monitoring system to ensure safety and security of LPG cylinders.”

Replying to a question, he said private sector would be enforced to create awareness among consumers side by side with raising quality of their products because the government primarily approved 60 companies for supplying LPG and now 17 companies are supplying LPG at consumer level.

“If consumers use LPG properly then accidents would be reduced significantly,” Munim said.
