ADNOC to sell 50lbs LPG cylinders across Northern Emirates from June 29

ABU DHABI: Starting June 29th, 50lb LPG cylinders will be retailed in the Emirates of Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Qaiwain, Ras al-Khaimah and Fujairah at ADNOC service stations round-the-clock.

ADNOC Distribution announced today that the decision will also allow U.A.E. nationals with a Rahal e-Gas card to buy one cylinder a month at a subsidised rate of AED30.

The move follows the directives of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Chairman of the Supreme Petroleum Council, and the follow-up of His Highness General Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the U.A.E. Armed Forces, as part of their vision to provide seamless convenience to all citizens of the U.A.E..

For his part, Abdulla Nasser Al Suwaidi, Director General of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company and Chairman of the Board of Directors of ADNOC Distribution, applauded the U.A.E. leadership s vision and said ADNOC is motivated to leverage all of its resources for appropriate implementation of the directive.

Abdulla Salem Al Dhaheri, Chief Executive Officer of ADNOC Distribution, said, “We commend the U.A.E. leadership for their relentless efforts to ensure the well-being of our citizens. Our efforts to roll out delivery of 50lb LPG cylinders across our service stations in the Emirates reflect ADNOC Distribution s commitment to conforming to the direction of our wise leadership.” ADNOC Distribution has said that Rahal e-Gas card holders are required to update their data to ensure their eligibility to purchase ADNOC Distribution s latest offering in the Northern Emirates.

These cards are issued free of charge to U.A.E. nationals through outlets in Abu Dhabi, the Western Region and Al Ain and Sharjah. The cards are also issued through Rahal e-Gas selling points located across a number of ADNOC Distribution s service stations in the Northern Emirates.

U.A.E. nationals need to submit a completed application form, plus a copy of their passport and family book for the purchase of Rahal e-Gas cards at the issuing centres. These cards can also be recharged to a value of AED200.
