Consistent with its commitment to expanding its line of products to meet the demands of the Dominican consumer, PDV Caribe Dominica Ltd will officially launch Petrocaribe LPG on Wednesday June 09, 2010.
PDV Caribe has a history as a supplier of gasoline and diesel to Dominica. The launch of Petrocaribe LPG will not only add to the list of petroleum products distributed by the company but will further stamp PDV Caribe Dominica’s relevance as an energy partner for Dominica.
PDV Caribe also views its entrance as a supplier into the LPG market as valuable because LPG is the major source of fuel for cooking in Dominica. Supplying a cheap and reliable source of cooking gas to Dominica was a major objective when the Governments of Dominica and Venezuela signed the Petrocaribe agreement in 2005. PDV Caribe regards the launch of Petrocaribe LPG in Dominica as further realization of that agreement.
The official ceremony to launch Petrocaribe LPG will take place at the Waitukubuli Fuel Storage and Distribution Plant in Jimmit on Wednesday June 09, 2010 from 10:00am. Officials of the Government of Dominica, including Prime Minster Hon Roosevelt Skerrit, Minister responsible for Petrocaribe Hon Reginald Austrie, representatives of the Embassy of Venezuela in Dominica, management of PDV Caribe Dominica, and other invited guests will be present at the ceremony.
