New fuel station in Aneityum
A new fuel station set up recently on the tiny island of Aneityum in Vanuatu’s south will now bring cheap fuel to the locals there.
The new fuel station set up by the Pacific Petroleum has begun supplying fuel to the people on the island as of last week.
The Area Secretary on the island of Aneityum, Selwyn Daniel, says now that there is a fuel station set up, fuel prices there will drop, which will largely benefit the boat owners.
Mr Daniel acknowledged the Pacific Petroleum’s response to a long time need for the people of Aneityum.
He says the Pacific Petroleum Office here in Port Vila said there will be an official opening for the fuel station but that will happen after the COVID lock downs as the company’s officials are based in Fiji and will have to come over to witness the official opening.
He says work to set up the station has been going on for a while until last week when it was opened for operation.
The same fuel project by Pacific Petroleum, has set up stations in Tanna, Malekula, Efate and Pentecost in the last two years.
