The Malta Resources Authority has urged Liquigas and Easygas to return each other’s cylinders, without payment, within five days.
The two companies have been arguing over the refunds which Liquigas pays to those who opt to return their cylinder, which was only done on presentation of a receipt.
Easygas maintained that this was hindering people from switching customers, and has started exchanging Liquigas cylinders for its own at no cost.
Easygas had also demanded a payment of €25 for each cylinder in order to return them.
Liquigas refused to pay, and insisted that Easygas should return its cylinders.
On Wednesday Liquigas claimed that the 6,000-odd cylinders Easygas was hoarding meant that it had run out of working cylinders itself, preventing distributors from collecting any.
