     The Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) today (May 9) announced that the department collected 10 liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) samples from auto-LPG filling stations and LPG terminals on a random basis in April 2014 for laboratory tests. The results showed that the LPG quality of all the samples complies with auto-LPG specifications.

     The detailed test results are available on the EMSD's website (www.emsd.gov.hk/emsd/eng/sgi/lpg_smpl_analysis.shtml). Enquiries can also be made to the EMSD's hotline on 2333 3762.

     In addition, the EMSD has been vetting the independent third-party test reports submitted by LPG supply companies for each shipment, to ensure that the quality of imported LPG complies with the specified requirements.
