Managing Director of BOST, Edwin Provencal, has disclosed that the Bolgatanga depot of his entity exported over 160 trucks of petroleum products to countries in West Africa.

Speaking at the end-of-year assessment stakeholder engagement the Edwin Provencal said the Bost Bolgatanga depot which began re-exportation of petroleum products in March 2021 was critical to Ghana’s economic development.

He said should the Bolgatanga depot be used to its full capacity, it will directly impact Ghana’s economy; adding that the depot was well positioned to benefit from the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA)

According to him, Bost (Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company Limited) had a huge profit in 2021.

He said the profit made was due to the efficient and prudent management of the entity, which focused on the rehabilitation of the facilities of the company to ensure security, safety, and profit.

“To manage the business of Storage and Transmission of fuels focusing on excellence in Security, Safety, and Profitability BOST undertook the rehabilitation of the Accra Plan Depot and initiated the Accra Plan Administration project.

“It also repaired the B2P3 pipeline, refurbishment of ‘TAPP’ pipeline from Tema to Akosombo and installed surveillance system on the TAPP, ongoing works on the Bolgatanga BRV park, and Kumasi Depot rehabilitation,” he said.

Edwin Provencal added that the company was also installing mass flowmeters, pumps, and loading arms in some of its facilities.

He further stated that BOST was building Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) tanks at all its depots to help it meet the growing demand for LPG gas products.
