JGRA, BSJ Technical Team To Meet Next Week Over Bad Gas Confusion

News post January 9, 2016

The Jamaica Gasoline Retailers’ Association (JGRA) says a meeting is being planned for early next week with a technical team from the Bureau of Standards Jamaica (BSJ) as it seeks clarity on the closure of gas pumps in the bad gas saga.

The association sought the meeting with the BSJ after the Bureau reissued closure notices on some gas stations which had previously been cleared to resume dispensing petrol from their pumps. Late last month, the BSJ ordered the closure of pumps at 17 gas stations over allegations they were dispensing contaminated gas. The closure order was later lifted for some of the gas stations.

However, on Tuesday the BSJ announced that it had again issued closure notices for pumps at three gas stations that had been cleared to reopen. President of the JGRA, Leonard Green says retailers are confused about the procedures used to close gas pumps. He says the operator of one of the affected stations is contending that the product tested by the BSJ was no longer in the pumps when the agency returned to issue the closure notice. Green says he’s hoping the BSJ will issue clear information to retailers about its procedures for testing fuel and closing pumps.
