Ghana’s strategic oil stock keeping company, Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company Ltd (BOST) has congratulated Chamber of Petroleum Consumers (COPEC-Ghana) and Institute for Energy Security (IES) for winning prestigious awards.
The two energy think tanks received awards at two separate events.
COPEC-Ghana was adjudged Energy Institution of the Year at the 4th Ghana Energy Awards while IES was adjudged Energy Activist Of The Year Award at the Oil & Gas Ghana Awards.
Commenting on the award, Managing Director of BOST, Edwin Provencal, said: “We received the news of IES and COPEC being recognised for their advocacy role without surprise, knowing very well the level of advocacy they are playing in the downstream petroleum sector.
“These two institutions have brought to the attention of stakeholders’ issues that affect the industry and consumers in particular and make sure that BOST, as an institution, stays focused and fulfills its core mandate of ensuring that we keep strategic fuel stock to prevent fuel shortages in the country. We appreciate their work,” he said.
Mr. Provencal urged them not to hesitate to knock at the doors of BOST if they have concerns which need redress.
“Our doors are always open to engage stakeholders in the industry. We can only thrive in a peaceful and congenial environment. We, therefore, urge all our stakeholders to knock at our doors to engage us and not resort to any medium that can create tension among stakeholders.”
