    OIL marketing companies have hailed the Minister for Energy and Minerals, Prof Sospeter Muhongo, for demanding detailed reports from various stakeholders on implementation of the bulk procurement system (BPS).

    The companies are optimistic that reports will enable the minister take appropriate action on a number of problems facing the system.
    Prof Muhongo last week, directed the Energy and Water Utilities Regulatory Authority (EWURA), Petroleum Importation Coordinator (PIC) and oil marketing companies to each avail him with reports on implementation of the system.
    The minister had tasked the trio to each present him the reports by Monday, this week, to enable the ministry address challenges facing the BPS since it was introduced in January, this year.
    "We commend the minister for taking a bold step on this issue and we are hopeful that challenges facing the system will be solved," a representative of oil marketing companies, said.
    BPS has since its introduction in January this year, faced complaints from stakeholders particularly on the tendering process as well as importation of petrol with higher amount of ethanol.
    A number of trucks carrying oil destined for neighbouring countries were sent back by authorities in those countries after the oil, particularly petrol, were found to be blended with ethanol.

    PIC is yet to take action against Augusta Energy SA which imported petrol with higher levels of ethanol between January and March this year. The Swiss company had won three separate tenders to import fuel between January and June, this year.
    Oil marketing companies have also blamed EWURA, as the industry watchdog, for failing to take action against Augusta Energy.
    Laboratory tests conducted by the Government Chemist Laboratory Agency (GCLA) revealed that 10 out of eleven ships that had brought fuel during the period contained higher amount of ethanol beyond specifications set by the Tanzania Bureau of Standards (TBS).
    Surprisingly, TBS had issued the importer of the disputed oil, Augusta Energy SA, with clean certificates of quality. It was only after oil marketing companies complained over the quality of the petrol that EWURA engaged GCLA to conduct separate laboratory tests that confirmed the oil to be off-specifications.

    Mtunzi wa riwaya:

    TBS ndio walioweka viwango vya ubora wa mafuta na walitoa cheti kuwa mafuta hayo yana ubora.

    1. EWURA hutegemea TBS waseme mafuta ni machafu ndipo ichukue hatua, vinginevyo utawala wa sheria utakuwa haupo
    2. PIC hawawezi kuichukulia hatua Augusta Energy SA kwa kuwa kiutaratibu hakuna kosa maana TBS wenye viwango vyao wamesema mafuta ni masafi. Wewe unataka PIC walipuke tu na kuiadhibu hiyo kampuni?

    3. Mafuta yaliyorudishwa: Specification hutofautiana kwa kila nchi, viwango vya TZ havikubaliki kwa wenzetu, hili sio suala la EWURA wala PIC, ni la kisera zaidi. Serikali ikiamua viwango vya juu, na bei itegemewe kuwa juu maana ethanol itapunguzwa.

    4. Sector ya mafuta ni ngumu kidogo. Wadau wa mafuta wanaolalamika ndio wanaounda PIC na hata Board yote inaundwa na wakurugenzi wa makampuni ya mafuta na sheria inawataka wabadilishane ukurugenzi karibu kila mwaka, hivyo hata hao wanaolalamika watakalia hivyo viti.

    5. Hayo makampuni yanayolalamika, wangekuwa wawazi kabla mafuta hayajapakiwa kwenye meli.

    Mtunga riwaya hii, haya yamekusaidia?

    Agusta hawafai...ila yule muitaliano alikaa Tanzania na anajua mambo yanavyokwenda. In combination with their representative here wanafanya mambo ya ajabu sana. Kama tunapenda magari yetu Ethanol isichanganywe kabisa na fuel

    Ulileta riwaya kutafuta mdau au kuihabarisha jamii? If you are among the GTs, pitia hoja zangu, leta mnyambulisho wako tuisaidie jamii sio kuleta mada ukitaka kuchafua organisations huku huna ujuacho vema. Ukiandikiwa ukweli, unahoji kama ni mdau, what a GT you are?
