Ogra informs FBR of LPG smuggling, seeks remedy

KARACHI: In a letter written to Federal Board of Revenue, Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (Ogra) has sought prompt action from the Customs authorities to curb illegal transportation of the substandard liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) through bordering countries, sources said.

According to letter, the substandard LPG is being smuggled from Iran and Afghanistan by road. The letter also said that LPG is highly inflammable and its handling requires expertise.

“Only licensed LPG marketing companies are allowed to import LPG, other companies’ agents having no license must not be permitted to import LPG,” the letter reads, and shared the list of authorised licensees for handling and marketing of LPG.
