Liberian Petroleum Importers Up 35%, says LPRC

By Decontee M. Wesseh, LINA

MONROVIA, March 23 (LINA) – The Managing Director of the Liberia Petroleum Refining Company (LPRC), T. Nelson Williams, has said that the number of Liberian petroleum importers has increased by 35 percent since 2010.

According to Williams, Liberian importers accounted for 30 percent of the market in 2010 when he assumed management of LPRC, but that figure jumped to 65 percent in 2014.

Addressing the Ministry of Information daily press conference in Monrovia at the weekend, Williams said the increase is due to the Liberianization Policy his administration introduced at LPRC.

He said in addition, more Liberian importers are also building and upgrading their filling stations in and out of Monrovia because LPRC has made it a requirement for importers of petroleum products.

He named Liberian Petroleum, Srimex, Conex, Kailondo and Aminata as five Liberian modernized filling stations in the country.
