NGC says there is no shortage of LPG!

This evening News Five reached out to the National Gas Company for comment on the issue. Their spokesperson Daniel Gutierrez says that there is no shortage of supply of L.P.G. He says that they have been fulfilling their loads according to schedule for all their distributors. Here’s how he explains it:


Via Phone: Daniel Gutierrez, Spokesperson, NGCL

“Every load of gas that has been sought by Belize’s thirty-plus intermediaries and distributors has been met since NGC started operations in May. In fact, Andrea, this morning a couple of loads went out to NGCs distributor clients. Like I said, there are thirty distributors and these three are only three of those thirty plus and not only have those loads been met this morning but all of the loads for the week that were scheduled will be met. So, there is no such thing as a shortage of gas. In fact, I will go even further and say to you that a tanker with over a million gallons of LPG is docking at the port of Big Creek tonight. So, no man, that is not the case. Belize is never out of gas. We are meeting what the country needs.”

‘Was there any point where they wanted a certain of amount to supply the market and NGC couldn’t come up with it immediately at that point?”

“…if for some reason you may …then you will not be loaded but other than that NGC has loaded its clients…ample supply of LPG.”


Andrea Polanco

“So, just to conclude, the NGC denies these claims put out there?”


Daniel Gutierrez

“NGC can say categorically that all the loads scheduled for this week shall be met.”
