NP CEO assures ‘gas for all’

By CLINT CHAN TACK Wednesday, June 27 2007

THE National Petroleum Marketing Company (NP) is confident any gas shortage headache experienced by the population will be a thing of the past, once its $132M nationwide service station upgrade is completed within the next two years.

The company also said its products are not subsidised by Government. It is ready to compete against any new players in the petroleum retail sector and will not be affected by the relocation of the Port-of-Spain port to Sea Lots.

In an interview at NP’s Sea Lots headquarters yesterday, company CEO Richard Callender said NP started to implement its service station upgrade in January and the process has been going smoothly to date. He added that the upgrade was part of a broader strategic plan developed for NP last year.

Recalling NP inherited a 40-year-old service station network from the foreign multinationals, Callender said, “Most of the stations of the old network have inadequate storage (2,500 to 3,000 gallons). They have very small storage and from an Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) perspective, single walled steel tanks.” Stating these tanks pose serious environmental hazards, Callendar said the new storage tanks at NP stations will be upgraded to double-walled tanks that are either fibre-glass reinforced or glass-steel. He added that these new tanks will be able to store 10,000 gallons of gasolene and would need to be replenished after three to four days.

Callender said five stations will be demolished and rebuilt over the next eight months while another nine stations (mostly in rural areas) will be retrofitted within the next four months.

NP technical services manager Garnet Redwood said the company is on schedule to open new service stations in Beetham, Mon Repos and Valencia in the next four months.

Wey these dense conts come out from.

Since 1998 nearly fockin 10years ago the UNC had started this programe of the refurbishment of all the Gas Stations throughout the country.

As a matter of fact this programme coincided with the implentation of the QuikShoppes as part of the scheme to upgrade all the stations througout T&T.

So wa these conts come to talk about now....u doh see these PNM niggas are a bunch of coppycats and boldface about it too.

Hello this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
