FUEL AND LPG DEALERS FLAGGED FOR MALPRACTICES

The Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority has flagged 14 fuel and eight LPG dealers over malpractices.

The 22 indicted sites are spread out across the country including Nairobi, Nakuru, Homabay, Bungoma, Marsabit, Busia and Kakamega.

The dealers have been flagged for various offences including selling fuel destined for the export market locally, offering adulterated fuel for sale and the possession of fuel meant for export without authorization.

The eight liquefied petroleum gas facilities were meanwhile all found to be refilling and trading with LPG cylinders belonging to other licensees without consent.

EPRA has taken various remedial action on the dealers including the closing down of entire stations, closing offending pumps, impounding transport trucks and arresting owners of non-compliant stations.

The energy sector regulator carried out 5,328 tests at 1,151 petroleum sites between July and September
