EMSD announces test results on LPG quality in March and April 2015

     The Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) today (May 8) announced that the department collected 49 liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) samples from auto-LPG filling stations and terminals in March and April 2015 for quality tests. Among them, 22 random samples were collected on a routine basis while 27 were additional samples. The results showed that the LPG quality of all these samples complied with auto-LPG specifications, except for the sample collected on April 2 from ExxonMobil's LPG filling station at Clear Water Bay Road.
     The EMSD has also been vetting 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.

     For details of the test results, please visit the EMSD's website (www.emsd.gov.hk/emsd/eng/sgi/lpg_smpl_analysis.shtml) or call the department's hotline on 2333 3762.
