Bad gas report due Sunday – Paulwell
Energy Minister Phillip Paulwell says he expects to get a preliminary report into the bad gas probe on Sunday.
On January 4, Paulwell announced the appointment of a committee to look into the matter.
He said then that the first report would be expected by January 31.
The committee is mandated to examine and review the protocols and regulations governing the petroleum trade.
It is also to act as impartial arbiter in the investigations being undertaken to identify the source, nature and susceptibility of locally distributed petrol to contamination and illegal activity.
The committee is chaired by engineer and business executive Noel DaCosta.
Motorists have reported various problems with their vehicles after allegedly buying bad gas from retailers.
