Azerbaijan, Baku, May 27 / Trend, E.Ismayilov /
In the near future Azerbaijan will approve new rules on the use of gas, prepared by the Ministry of Industry and Energy of Azerbaijan, the state gas monitoring department head under the Ministry of Energy Asif Zeynalov said.
"All necessary amendments after the submission of this document to the relevant bodies were made, after which the document was submitted to the Azerbaijani Cabinet of Ministers. I hope that the rules will be approved in the near future," Zeynalov said.
He said all the reviews and recommendations of SOCAR and Emergency Situations Ministry were taken into account. The document remained its primary content.
He said that the development of rules for use of gas in Azerbaijan is of great importance. So far, the republic had no uniform national rules for use of gas. Relations in this sphere were governed by rules worked out during the Soviet period. The prepared document is intended to protect the rights of consumers. It is designed to inform them of the rights and responsibilities in use of gas.
One of the points in the worked out rules is the right to use gas on the ground floors of residential buildings. If you are on the ground floors of buildings, which are not used for residential purposes, the use of gas is prohibited, then the new rules use a gas such objects provided. Permission allows using of a four-burner and one-standard water heater.
