ADNOC Distribution has announced starting June 29, 50lbs LPG cylinders will be retailed across its service stations in the emirate of Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah.
The decision allows UAE nationals with a Rahal E-Gas card to buy gas cylinders at a subsidized rate of AED30 per cylinder, the same retail price offered in Abu Dhabi. A monthly cap has also been set that permits the purchase of one 50lbs and two 25lbs cylinders on a monthly basis.
The move articulates the directive of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, UAE President and 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 UAE Armed Forces, as part of their vision to provide seamless convenience to all citizens of the UAE.
For his part, His Excellency Abdulla Nasser Al Suwaidi, Director General of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) and Chairman of the Board of Directors of ADNOC Distribution, applauded the UAE leadership’s vision and said ADNOC is motivated to leverage all of its resources for appropriate implementation of the directive.
His Excellency Abdulla Salem Al Dhaheri, Chief Executive Officer of ADNOC Distribution, said: “We commend the UAE leadership for their relentless efforts to ensure the well-being of our citizens. Our efforts to roll out the delivery of 50lbs LPG cylinders across our service stations in the emirates reflect ADNOC Distribution’s commitment to conforming to the direction of our wise leadership.”
To ensure their eligibility to purchase ADNOC Distribution’s latest offering in the Northern Emirates, Rahal E-Gas cards holders are required to update their data. E-Gas cards are issued free of charge to UAE nationals through Rahal card 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.
UAE nationals need to submit a filled in application form, copy of their passport and family book for the purchase of Rahal E-gas cards at the issuing centers. Rahal E-Gas cards can also be recharged for a value of AED200 minimum cape.
