Bnamericas Published: Friday, November 29, 2013

Mexico's energy ministry Sener has immobilized nine LPG transportation trucks as it tightens safety enforcement, according to a press release.

Sener found nine of the 13 trucks inspected at a checkpoint in Texcoco, Mexico state lacked necessary safety or administrative requirements. This brings the total number of immobilized LPG trucks to 74 for the year.

The stricter standards are being implemented after a handful of deadly LPG transportation and storage incidents this year.

Earlier this week, Sener levied fines of 52.1mn pesos (US$3.98mn) on LPG distributor Tomza Gas after an October explosion at its storage facilities left five dead.
