|MEMBER OIL – OGRA INAUGURATES PSO’S REGULATORY COMPLIANT MODERN FLEET IN ISLAMABAD|
|Member Oil, Oil & Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA), Dr. Abdullah Malik, inaugurated PSO’s newly introduced tank lorries in an opening ceremony held in Islamabad. MD & CEO PSO, Sheikh Imranul Haque, and other senior officials from the company were also present on this occasion. |
As part of the opening ceremony, Dr Abdullah Malik was briefed by the PSO Senior Management about regulatory compliance features of the PSO modern fleet. While updating the honorable chief guest of the ceremony about compliant standards and safety features, MD PSO, Sheikh Imranul Haque said:
“The PSO branded tank lorries launched and inducted in our fleet today have a capacity of approximately 20,000 liters each and will be used to transport Jet A-1 fuel and other white oil products from PSO depots to consumer outlets. These lorries have an integrated tank on rigid frame with 3 axles and safety accessories including pneumatically operated foot-valves designed to minimize the possibility of leakages. Main tank hole covers are on UNADR standards to maintain pressure in the fuel chambers while special baffle plates within chamber walls safeguard the partition. The TLs have an engine capacity that fully complies OGRA guidelines whereas the outer side also properly highlights safety signs and petroleum product codes.”
“All these features will help in environment protection, and safety of human life, public property and road infrastructure. These tank lorries are fully fit to transport petroleum products in far and distant areas of the difficult northern territory of Pakistan and can be used to transport petroleum products across the border due to their compliance status to NHA and OGRA guidelines.”
The Member Oil, Honorable Dr Abdullah Malik, appreciated PSO’s efforts and concrete steps taken to modernize its fuel transportation fleet.
