The Interim Management Committee (IMC) of Tema Oil Refinery (TOR) has commenced investigation into some product loses to the state owned company. According to a statement issued by TOR yesterday, the company said it lost various products including but not limited to liquified petroleum gas (LPG), aviation fuel, Gas oil and electrical cables between April and September 2021.
"In order to eradicate product loses at TOR to the berest minimum to enable TOR realise it's vast potentials, the interim management committee (IMC), as part of its mandate, commenced investigation into product storage and transfer loses", the introduction to of the document read
The products lost as captured by the document are
1. The disappearance of 105,927 litres of Gas oil on 4th September 2021
2. The wrongful loading of 252,000 litres of Aviation Turbine Kerosene (ATK) instead of regular kerosene into BRV trucks between 21st and 25th September 2021
3. The disappearance of 18 drums of electrical cables worth GHC 10.4m in April 2021.
4. The disappearance of LPG gas belonging to a client between 2012 and 2015 leading to an indeptedness of $4m on TOR.
5. Loss of Naphtha to a BDC client.
But TOR management has already suspended and interdicted some staff who are suspected to have hands in the mass losses pending the outcome of the investigation. While doing this TOR is urging all its staff and stakeholders to remain calm as anyone cleared will be reinstated.
This scandal is the first major scandal to hit the nation's refinery after some 5m litres of contaminated fuel got missing at BOST in 2018.
We hope the investigations will be done without fear or favour and persons found culpable dealt with according to the laws of the land, to serve as deterrent to others.
