The DoE has been mandated as the Competent Authority to regulate all aspects of trading petroleum products (for all non-ADNOC private operators) – as defined in Federal Law 14 (2019) and mandated within the Emirate of Abu Dhabi through Abu Dhabi Law No.5 (2023).
The DoE is establishing a new regulatory framework and executive regulations (for gas systems in buildings) to govern the trading of petroleum products in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. This framework ensures that stringent standards are applied to petroleum products trade, safeguarding the well-being of the community and businesses.
This new framework affects two major stakeholder groups:
1. Commercial and Industrial petroleum stakeholders (Product Manufacturers, Traders, and Service Providers)
2. Building Owners and Tenants (Commercial, Residential and Industrial Buildings Residents, Tenants and Owners)
