ADNOC to subsidise sales of LPG cylinders
Offer is open to UAE nationals and expatriates
ADNOC Distribution has announced the regulation of sale of subsidised LPG cylinders in Abu Dhabi through limiting their purchase only to Rahal e-Gas pre-paid cardholders over the next weeks.
The move is in line with the UAE's vision of aligning all of its functions with smart services that will ensure safer, easier and faster service to our customers within the network.
Those without a Rahal e-gas card will be able to buy LPG cylinders by paying in cash or with bank cards at non-subsidised rates.
Abdulla Salem Al Dhaheri, CEO of ADNOC Distribution, said: “Introducing Rahal e-Gas cards aims to rationalise the use of gas consumption, ensuring that customers benefit from the subsidised prices. In the next few weeks.”
ADNOC Distribution will launch an awareness campaign on LPG cylinders’ new procedure and the mechanism of applying for Rahal e-Gas cards and will provide further details for all the categories of customers across Abu Dhabi Emirate.
“ADNOC Distribution will grant customers sufficient time to register for Rahal e-Gas cards, prior to restricting sales at service stations,” Al Dhaheri added.
The categories of customers that benefit from subsidised cylinders include UAE families, UAE singles, expat families and expat singles.
Based on findings related to average monthly LPG consumption, the company has set specific quotas for all the four categories.
Once the campaign starts, the application and issuance of cards will be done through the company’s six Rahal centres: ADNOC Distribution Head Office in Abu Dhabi; Rahal centres at Airport Road service station, Musaffah station and Khalifa City station; Al Ain Regional Office; and Western Region centre in Madinat Zayed.
Customers will also be able to apply for these cards at 97 service stations across Abu Dhabi Emirate, which include 52 outlets in Abu Dhabi, 27 in Al Ain and 18 in the Western Region.
