Sale of contaminated fuel: ACEP wants investigations, BOST boss step aside

The Africa Centre for Energy Policy (ACEP) is demanding full-scale investigations into the issues surrounding the sale of five million substandard petroleum product  onto the Ghanaian market. It also wants the Head of the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company Limited to immediately step aside to allow the independent investigation to take place unimpeded. The product was contaminated when petrol and diesel accidentally mixed when a petrol flow-line was misdirected into a diesel tank during a discharge of petrol cargo into the Accra plains depot. The product has since been released for sale to consumers, although experts say it is “unfit to run in any automobile engine.” ACEP has described the situation as worrying especially coming on the back of a clean fuel campaign geared to get the sulfur content of petroleum products from the current 3000ppm to 50ppm, effective from 1st July, 2017.
