DO not panic-buy cooking gas.

The Trinidad & Tobago National Petroleum Marketing Company Limited (NP) is advising the population that there is no shortage of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG). 

In a release issued on Sunday, NP referred to an article published in the Sunday Express that outlined that several petrochemical plants at Point Lisas were currently shut down due to a fire at bpTT’s Mahogany hub.

NP stated, “The article also states that one of these plants is the lone cooking gas producer in the country which alludes to the fact this could affect the supply of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG)/cooking gas to the nation.”

“In light of the issues raised, NP wishes to advise that at present, there is no shortage of LPG to the public and measures have been implemented to ensure an uninterrupted supply.

“Therefore, consumers are encouraged to maintain their normal purchasing patterns and avoid panic-buying which will only serve to cause shortages.”

NP further stated that NP’s LPG plant operations will continue as normal, with systems in place to prevent any disruption to supplies.

The release stated, “NP wishes to reassure the public that we will continue to meet the needs of the country in a timely manner to ensure the reliable and continuous supply of LPG /cooking gas to the local market.”
