In May 2021, the National Petroleum Authority (NPA) increased the BOST Margin, a tax in the petroleum price build up for the operation and maintenance of storage and transmission infrastructure of BOST.
This created a huge debate between BOST who justified the increased margin and the CSOs who hitherto had questioned the basis for the increase of the margin.
It is for this reason BOST Management led by Mr. Edwin Provencal, having put the increased margin to judicious use invited the CSOs to see things for themselves.
Since the increment by government, the company has undertaken numerous initiatives and maintenance works:
* replacement and addition of new loading arms
* Replacement of analog flow meters with digital flow meters
* Repair of damaged Buipe-Bolga Pipeline
* Construction of 300 capacity BRV parking lot at the Bolgatanga depot among others.
The CSOs expresssed satisfaction at the job done so far and hoped to see even more progress when they visit again by the next scheduled period.
The new BOST is on course to become the Number One fuel and logistics business in the Sub-Region.
