NP: No LPG shortage

Saturday, May 10 2014

NATIONAL Petroleum (NP) says it wishes to assure the public that there will be no shortage of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) cylinders in the marketplace this weekend as a result of “operational problems” encountered during the week. NP also reported there is no shortage of any other type of fuel it sells, including premium gasoline.

In a statement issued yesterday, NP said operations at its subsidiary, Natpet Investments Company Limited, which fills and distributes LPG cylinders, were hampered by smoke emanating from the near Beetham Landfill on Monday and challenges with forklift equipment between Tuesday and Thursday.

“Despite these two situations, all LPG distributors were contacted and informed of the operational problems and all distributor lorries which came to the filling plant during the week were serviced with their orders for 20 lb and / or 100 lb cylinders, including, in some instances when lorries were serviced through manual loading,” NP said.

The company said operations returned to normalcy at at about 2 pm on Thursday and that the Filling Plant was adequately stocked yesterday to serve the LPG distributors, however the LPG lorries lined up outside of the Natpet compound making no attempt to enter.

“After pre-noon discussions with representatives from the distributors and some lorry drivers with NP and Natpet managers where agreement was reached on a combined approach to problem solving, the lorries came onto the compound to fill their daily orders.”
