‘Bad Gas’ Emergency Meeting set for Today

The Portia Simpson Miller administration is to convene an emergency meeting with stakeholders today, after receiving a report from the Bureau of Standards Jamaica, BSJ, on the bad gas issue.

Nationwide News disclosed two weeks ago that an investigation was underway to determine the source of contaminated fuel which has caused damage to scores of motor vehicles across the island.

At least 15-service stations have reportedly been implicated in a probe by the BSJ.

State Minister of Energy, Julian Robinson says stakeholders will examine the report today.

Minister Robinson says the investigation was focused on identifying the contaminants in the bad gas.

He says a separate investigation is underway to determine the extent of the problem.
