  • LNG cargoes that fall short of the standards pose a threat to the community safety and impinge on the profitability of national companies, a ministry official said.
  • The ministry is keen to enhance corporate awareness about the procedures adopted by the UAE to regulate the transportation of oil derivatives.

The UAE’s Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure said on Wednesday that it is intensifying inspections of liquefied natural gas (LNG) shipments coming to the country in collaboration with its partners.
Intensified inspections are being carried out to ensure compliance with standards and technical regulations and specifications in place in the country, local media reports said.
In this connection, Sharif Al Olama, Under-Secretary for Energy and Petroleum Affairs at the Ministry, and a few representatives of Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology, visited the Khatmat Malahah border post in Sharjah.
Al Olama said the ministry is keen to enhance corporate awareness about the procedures adopted by the UAE to regulate the transportation of oil derivatives according to global safety and security standards.
“Ensuring safety and security is a leading national priority. Therefore, we seek to reinforce joint action to monitor LNG imports,” he said and added that LNG cargoes that fall short of the standards pose a threat to the community safety and security and impinge on the profitability of national companies.
