The cost of gas hookups in Sharjah is Dh200 higher

A gas pipeline hookup will now cost Sharjah residents a maximum of Dh300.

According to Gulf Today, the Sewa has entrusted five private businesses to provide natural cooking gas connections in Sharjah. These are permitted to charge connection fees to clients up to a maximum of Dh300.

Sewa provided direct connections to families and charged Dh100 as connection costs up until last month.

However, residents who choose to move their gas connections to another apartment, even one within the same building, would now be required to pay Dh300.

A Sewa official in the gas distribution wing’s main office was quoted in the newspaper as saying that Sewa had given the responsibility of setting up gas connections to four private companies: Al Madar Engineering LLC, Gulf Gas, Qous Quzah Gas Installation, and Saida Gas Contracting.

For each new connection and reconnection, these businesses may impose service fees of up to Dh300. The official indicated that it is up to them if somebody is willing to offer a discount.
