Energy Minister, Mr. Boakye Agyarko, has announced the intention of the ministry to set up an investigative committee to look into the release of some off-sec fuel by the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Commission company.

 

The eight member committee is expected to advise the ministry on the necessary technical, administrative and legal actions to be taken against the release.

Speaking at a mid year review, organised by the Energy Ministry to ascertain the performances of all sector agencies, directorates and departments at Ada on Wednesday, Mr. Bokaye Agyarko said “the Ministry's attention has been drawn to various media reports on the issue of the release of 5 million litres of off-sec fuel from the Accra plains Depot of Bulk Oil Storage and Transport (BOST).

According to him, a preliminary report from an investigations by the National Petroleum Authority reveals that BOST has so far evacuated a total of 471, 000 litres of the said product and has currently suspended evacuation in compliance with NPA instructions.

Meanwhile, as part of its terms of references, the committee would within a month determine the circumstances that created the off-spec product, review the procedures undertaken by BOST to evacuate the product and ascertain the quality and remaining quantity of the product.

The committee will as well determine if the product can be corrected, if not determine the alternative use for the product and review the transaction.

Mr. Agyarko, indicated that representatives of the committee would include National Petroleum Authority (NPA), Tema Oil Refinery (TOR), Ghana Standard Authority (GSA), Bureau of National Investigations, Chamber of Bulk Oil Distributors, Association of Oil Marketing Companies, Energy Commission and a representative from the relevant Civil Society Organisations.

The Minister assured that the Ministry is determined to ensure that the integrity of the petroleum products supplied in the country is protected, hence the decision.

On Tuesday, the Minority in Parliament demanded an immediate interdiction of the head of the Bulk Oil Storage and Transport (BOST) Company over the raging controversy about the contaminated fuel.

But Mr. Agyarko said a recommendation from the committee would determine that.
