Paria Fuel Trading Company Limited (Paria) wishes to reassure the public that the Company remains well-resourced to provide the country and its customers in the region with a safe and reliable supply of fuel. This assurance is supported by having healthy inventories and contingencies in its supply chain.
As COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) became prevalent in December 2019, Paria’s Management team proactively developed a Business Continuity Pandemic Plan that focuses on three priorities:
- Priority #1 – Safety of our employees
- Priority #2 – Continued supply of fuel and products to the nation
- Priority #3 – Sustainability of the business and its operations
The Terminal Operations Team continues to liaise with the Port Health Officer on established guidelines on handling of vessels visiting the port to ensure the safety of our employees. All fuel inventories are continuously monitored, and daily discussions are conducted with our suppliers who have reassured the Company that cargoes are available. Arrangements are confirmed for 5 cargoes to be discharged before the end of month.
