Qatar Cabinet approves new rules for petrol station regulator


Petrol stations in Qatar could face more scrutiny in the coming years after the country’s Cabinet approved new unspecified draft regulations yesterday for a special committee overseeing the sector.

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.”
