The United Independent Petroleum Marketing Company Limited (Unipet) has announced plans to build a US$4.9 million multi-purpose fuel station in Guyana.
According to Unipet it is currently awaiting approval from the Guyana Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to build a multi- purpose fuel facility at Pant ‘P’, Land of Canaan, East Bank Demerara, Guyana.
“This US$4.9 Million investment will provide a Bulk Fuel Storage Facility with Gantry Loading, Office buildings and a Gas Station and Convenience Store,” Unipet stated in a release yesterday.
“Once the approval is granted, construction will begin with the actual opening projected for 24 months later. The overall life of the Project is 30 years with the first 2 years devoted to construction and commissioning. From construction to commissioning, the project is expected to provide employment for locals from a range of professions,” it stated.
Unipet said the decision to invest in Guyana is consistent with its vision “to be one of the most admired energy and convenience service companies delivering superior value in the Caribbean.”
Unipet said it anticipates a positive response from the Guyana Environmental Protection Agency and has compiled with all regulatory requirements.
