Taxi drivers and owners of private vehicles who have converted to NGV, take note. Petronas has temporarily suspended sales of NGV gas at its stations in three states. This means that 67 stations in the Klang Valley, Negri Sembilan and Johor will stop selling NGV until further notice.

This is to accommodate upgrading works. “Petronas Dagangan Bhd is taking more stringent safety measures at all its stations that offer the NGV facility,” the company said in a press statement, adding that it is working closely with the relevant authorities in this exercise to ensure “the highest safety standards at our premises.”

This comes after a man died when a tank containing NGV fuel exploded at a petrol station in Johor Baru last week. No change in petrol and diesel sales, as well as its Kedai Mesra convenience store operations.
