Rubis Gas Not Contaminated

Kingston, Jamaica: -- “Rubis’ petrol storage facility is not contaminated,” declared Rubis Chief Executive Officer Alain Carreau in response to a media report earlier today (Monday, January 4, 2016).  Carreau further stated, “we have not received any report from the Bureau of Standards in that regard.” 

Fuel in the Rubis storage facility is sourced from Petroleum Corporation of Trinidad and Tobago (PetroTrin).  The imported fuel endures rigorous internal and external testing at multiple levels.  PetroTrin provides a Certificate of Quality for the fuel supplied which undergoes further tests by PetroJam and Rubis, confirming that the fuel meets, or exceeds, local standards.  Locally, Rubis also sources fuel from PetroJam which is transported directly to Rubis service stations.

The subject of “unwashed gum” has been raised recently:  There is no specification under Jamaican law for “unwashed gum” levels in gasoline-ethanol blends with additives; leading marketing companies, including Rubis, add their own additives to enhance the performance of the product.  “As there is no local specification for “unwashed gum” we comply with international standards.  To put it simply, our products meet and in many cases, exceed, all local standards and regulations where they exist,” continued Carreau.

The Bureau of Standards Jamaica (BSJ) recently carried out tests at over 30 retail gas stations across the island and several stations supplied by various marketing companies returned similar test results.  “In fact, the vast majority of the stations with similar test results are not supplied by Rubis,” Carreau explained. 

“Our loyal customers have been very supportive as they, like us, are confident in the quality of our products,” Carreau concluded.
