BWEL, ZETA, GAS TOMZA claims shortage of LPG & blames NGC!

The Central American L.P.G. companies of BWEL, Zeta Gas and Gas Tomza say that they have to ration out L.P.G. to supply the local market. According to the three companies, they have been getting inconsistent supply from the National Gas Company and they have been unable to meet the demands of the local market. Here’s how their spokesperson puts it:

“There has been an inconsistent supply of LPG – liquid petroleum gas – to Gas Tomza, BWEL and Zeta Gas. As far back as late February, BWEL has made contacts with the monopoly supplier the National Gas Company of Belize regarding shipments and they have been inconsistent. The same has happened with Gas Tomza –so Gas Tomza has written to them because their supply has dwindled to a drastic measure. Initially, they have reduced the stock from one hundred percent that they would initially get from the regular supply from the bowsers down to 70 percent and it is possibly going to be less. To be able to furnish the market, people at home they are now going to ration fuel for what they sell to customers to be able to reach an entire market and that is a problem and all three companies are facing the same issue as it relates to the supply. They are unable to get a reason from NGCL as to why the supply has dwindled.”
