In wake of a number of vehicles spontaneously combusting and reports suggesting that these were linked to the use of a certain type of fuel, the Guyana Oil Company (GUYOIL) has sought to clear its name by way of an whole page advertisement published in the daily newspapers.
The company made it pellucid that it has an ongoing commitment to the Guyanese people and asserted that, “We are dedicated to ensuring that our customers continue to receive products of the highest quality. This dedication is evidenced by our compliance with all required standards from the relevant local agencies.”
In the ad captioned “GUYOIL’S QUALITY ASSURANCE”, the company made it clear that it not only subscribes to Global Fuel Standards as set out by the American Society For Testing and Materials (ASTM) but all of its imported fuel is tested at the port of loading by an independent certified laboratory. “All of our employees who are involved with the handling of fuel are trained and adept on the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) in handling fuel in accordance with International Safety Management (ISM) and the Guyana National Bureau of Standards,” the company assured.
It was also underscored that GUYOIL is fully compliant with both local and international standards and that “we are proud to boast that the products distributed by GUYOIL to our customers are certified and of the highest quality.”
