Ali Al-Khasawneh, who is in charge of gas cylinders at JoPetrol said on Tuesday, that the first step would be to inspect the gas cylinder as soon as it is received from the market, where inspectors discard of damaged ones or refer them to maintenance.  On average, some 2,000 cylinders are referred to maintenance on daily basis, where they are subjected to fresh paint and replacement of valves, according to Khasawneh. 

The head of the owners of hydrocarbon stations, Nahar Al-Saeedat, said that the installation of washing units aims to ensure that gas cylinders reach consumers in a proper condition, noting that they are sterilized and cleaned even if they “seem to be in bad shape” and safety of use is constantly monitored. “No gas cylinder will leave JoPetrol unless it is 100 percent safe and secure,” he said.

JoPetrol is in the process of preparing the project tenders and the cleaning process is expected to begin in the summer.
