Following the shutdown of all 67 Natural Gas Vehicle (NGV) outlets in the Klang Valley, Negri Sembilan and Johor on October 31, Petronas Dagangan has said it will expedite maintenance and upgrading works. “We’re working very hard to ensure the stations are operational as soon as possible,” said Aadrin Azly, retail business division head.

The shutdown followed after the death of a man when an NGV tank exploded at a Petronas fuel station in Taman Mount Austin on October 25. “We are also ensuring that in terms of safety, all the maintenance is in place, while upgrading the NGV facilities to make it efficient and safe for the public,” said Aadrin.

Aadrin further stated that Petronas Dagangan remains committed to the provision of NGV to users, reiterating that services will resume soon. He said this during the launch of the Maybank Islamic Petronas Ikhwan Visa Card-i in Kuala Lumpur.
