The West Indies Oil Company is able to source cooking gas to meet the demands of hotels and households


Cabinet Notes: The Cabinet was informed that the West Indies Oil Company (WIOC) has been able to source LPG to meet the demands of hotels and households until the seas are sufficiently calm, allowing the re-filler vessels to dock.

It is expected that the first vessel will arrive on Saturday.

For almost three weeks rough seas and groundswell have prevented LNG and LPG re-filler vessels from re-supplying the WIOC storage tanks.

  1. WIOC:Have at least one month supply in your storage tanks for situations such as this. Did you not pay your creditors so they hold back on your supply? Cash only on your delivery.

  2. I read,,,rough seas
    Not paying creditors ,,was never a part of this article,,,, maybe they have dipped into the supply of LPG gas destined for another country,, until rough seas subside,which I’m pretty sure if they dipped into gas , destined for another country, they will have to issue a check to that country, at least replace it,,,,, if they’re lucky

  3. So the Tawp Dog and WIOC had some tough negotiations to rescue us the consumers for our cooking gas shortage. All hype for votes.
    A u must cut out the drama pretending to be the saving grace.
    All of a sudden the gas cannot reach the port. Maybe a u must tap the drilling.
    Biggest tourist boat can anchor , tanker cannot anchor. This story no add up.

  4. @WTF: All I am doing is asking questions of WIOC.Have the seas by rough for months?Gaston Browne,fire the entire Board of WIOC.Then again,you would have to fire your wife also.Because she is on that Board.By the way Gaston.How could you let Substantive Ministers in your Cabinet be on Statutory Boards.Isn’t that a conflict of interests. They could use insider information from those Cabinet and Board Meetings to enrich themselves. Why is that allowed in your Administration. We called that back in the day,Bobol.

  5. Well, the Caribbean needs to serious look at building a pipeline for both LPG, LNG and Other Gasoline type of products. Why can the Americans build the Keystone Pipeline and the Russian build the European Gas Line. We also need to build a gas line from WIOC to the APC plant in Parham. The trucks going up and down the entire day destroying our roads is not economical.

    • Don’t worry yourself @ From The Sideline, your own Gaston “Moses” Browne is on the case of the lack of gas(sy) as we type boss …💻

  6. Sidelines: Those trucks that you referenced. Who are the owners of said trucks? They are certainly making bundles of greenbacks,$$$$$$.
