Department Of Petroleum Resources - DPR

The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) has warned all those who indulge in illegal sale of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) and other sharp practices to desist from such henceforth.

This warning was given by the Operations Controller, DPR, Warri Zonal Office, Mr. Antai Asuquo at the 2020 Annual General Meeting of the DPR, Warri Zonal Office on Thursday at Ugboroke Community near Warri.

Asuquo identified ‘black market’ gas distribution as a serious danger to the gas sector. He said henceforth, all trucks involved in the illegal trade would be impounded while the owner company would take full responsibilities of their drivers.
