Abu Dhabi: The Statistics Centre – Abu Dhabi (SCAD) has started a field survey in association with the Gas Safety Committee led by the Department of Energy – Abu Dhabi. Its goal is to gain a comprehensive understanding of the trends and usage of gas in residential buildings and units across the regions of Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, and Al Dhafra.
The purpose of this survey is to support the efforts of the Gas Safety Committee in ensuring the safe and secure utilization of gas, whether through gas cylinders or central sources and to enhance the application of the relevant safety regulations.
Mr. Abdulla Gharib Alqemzi, Acting Director General of the Statistics Centre – Abu Dhabi, remarked that, “SCAD is keen to support the efforts made by the Abu Dhabi government, represented by the Gas Safety Committee, to raise the level of safety and security of gas supplies and uses in a way that ensures the protection of community members as per the directives of our wise leadership and the relevant institutions in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.”
“The statistical survey carried out by SCAD reflects the Centre’s firm commitment to actively contributing to achieving the goals of the Gas Safety Committee by providing databases that can be relied upon in efforts to achieve the goals of the Abu Dhabi government and Vision 2030,” Mr. Gharib Alqemzi added.
The survey covers various aspects critical to ensuring the efficiency of gas supplies and promoting awareness of safe gas usage. It will classify different types of gas sources and assess their compliance with safety and security standards by focusing on regular checks and necessary maintenance.
The Gas Safety Committee, which was established on August 21, 2023, has commenced a review of safety procedures and standards for gas supply and installation activities in Abu Dhabi. This initiative is part of a broader assessment of the safety of liquefied petroleum gas systems in buildings across Abu Dhabi.
