Yesterday, I met the Tanker Owner’s Union at the Ministry of Energy. In the presence of the Managing Director of the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company Limited (BOST), our discussions centered on the proposed construction of a petroleum product pipeline from Accra to Kumasi.
I indicated quite clearly to these owners their centrality to this all-important project and thus asked them to collaborate with BOST by way of written inputs and submissions towards the fine-tuning of the project.
This, among others are part of the overall strategy of ensuring that the business of fuel transportation is conducted in an efficient and an environmentally friendly and sustainable manner.
The Ministry continues to engage key stakeholders in its pursuits and I have no doubt that this particular action will yield the needed results for the growth and advancement of our downstream petroleum sector.
