The Nigerian Association of Liquefied Petroleum Gas Marketers (NALPGAM) has warned against the dangers in indiscriminate citing of Liquefied Gas Plants without recourse to safety measures, The Sun reports.

The Association therefore, called on the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) to check the trend and ensure compliance before issuing licenses to would-be gas plant operators, pointing out that the current state of affairs in the sector poses a threat which could be disastrous for the environment.

Out-going President of the association, Basil Ogbuanu stated the position of the association in Benin City, Edo State where its Annual General Meeting (AGM) and national election was held. He said the association must continue to advocate and work closely with DPR on the issue, as the indiscriminate positioning of these facilities mean’t they were time bombs waiting to explode.
