Fuel ‘not inferior’


Share post:

The Barbados National Oil Co. Ltd (BNOCL) says it is not importing “inferior quality fuel”.

Chairman Alex McDonald sought to clear the air yesterday at a press conference held by Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley, following the Barbados Light & Power’s (BL&P) claims that some of the problems it was experiencing with its equipment at the Spring Garden plant were due to contaminated fuel in the last shipment it received from the Government-owned entity.

The chairman said several other customers were using the same fuel and not experiencing any problems.

He explained that the BNOCL had been sourcing fuel from two United States companies, Novum Energy and Vitol, for many years with relatively no issues. (MB)
