The regulatory body is led by a representative of Qatar Petroleum – which owns 20 percent of state fuel company Woqod – and is tasked with evaluating and making recommendations on how to improve existing stations. The committee was formed in 2014, several months after the chair of the Central Municipal Council called unsafe petrol stations “a time bomb.”
