NPA: Cylinder recirculation module policy to takeoff from fourth quarter

“The CEO of NPA Dr Mustapha Hamid, in the last month has been busy inspecting the necessary infrastructure that should come on board to support the implementation of the module So he has visited bottling plants, he has visited manufacturing companies, both public and private.”

The National Petroleum Authority (NPA)  has announced plans to roll out the much awaited cylinder recirculation module by the fourth quarter of this year.

The Cylinder Recirculation Model is a LPG marketing model that involves filling LPG cylinders at large refilling plants and then supplying the filled cylinders to consumers at specialised retail outlets called exchange points.

The consumer exchanges his/her empty cylinder for a filled one at the exchange point.

Talking to sit-in host of the Asaase Breakfast Show Benjamin Offei-Addo on Friday(5 August) Mohammed Abdul Kudus , communication manager at NPA said the policy is read for a possible take-off after a successful piloting in 2019 and 2020.

“The CEO of NPA Dr Mustapha Hamid, in the last month has been busy inspecting the necessary infrastructure that should come on board to support the implementation of the module So he has visited bottling plants, he has visited manufacturing companies, both public and private.”

“The last time he met the LPG to give his word, he said we are looking at the last quarter of this year to roll the scheme. That the expectation,” Kudus said.

The communication manager of NPA attributed the delay in the implementation of the policy to lack of adequate infrastructure.

“The reason we [NPA] have not commenced ‘cylinder re-circulation’ is not because of issues with the policy, rather the infrastructure to facilitate it is the issue,” he said.

Kudus added “This is what has held back the ‘cylinder re-circulation’ exercise back! The policy framework has been properly fashioned and is ready for takeoff … We are now working on the exigencies that will ensure that the actually takeoff will be a success.”
