In view of the impending weather conditions due to the approaching Tropical Storm Karen, the T&T National Petroleum Marketing Company Limited (NP) is advising the public that NP has taken all necessary steps to prepare for the impact.
Furthermore, NP has also instituted contingency measures to ensure that the National Community and the Aviation industry will continue to receive a steady supply of fuel.
NP’s Piarco facility is equipped with an adequate supply of jet fuel, and orders to Service Stations are being delivered via Road Tank Wagons out of NP’s Sea Lots, POS operations.
In a coordinated effort, NP’s HSSE personnel and Maintenance teams have secured its tank farm and LPG facilities, with the Maintenance team poised to act as first responders in the event there are emergencies at any of our Service Stations.
Additionally, the operations at NP’s Tobago Terminal will continue as normal, to the extent that this is feasible, as the established safety protocols are followed.
"In situations like these, NP places great emphasis on the security of its facilities and on the safety of its employees. While we continue to monitor the situation and deliver fuel to ensure that the Country has a reliable and continuous supply of fuel, Service Stations will remain open to the extent possible, without compromising the safety of their workers, " NP said in a media statement.
"NP urges citizens to remain vigilant and heed the warnings and alerts from the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Management and the Meteorological Office. NP remains alert to the developing situation and will continue to closely monitor the situation and advise the public where necessary, " it added.
