Santol Energy distributes free hand sanitisers, reduces fuel prices to ¢4.9

Santol Energy has announced what appears to be a double bonanza for motorists with the distribution of freehand sanitizers to all its customers and a reduction in prices of products at all fuel stations across the country.

A litre of petrol is now selling at 4.9 cedis per litre, down from 5.25 a litre, one of the lowest in the market, CEO of the Company Alhaji Fareed Amin Yakubu has confirmed.

“The free sanitizers are part of efforts by Santol to help in the fight against the deadly Coronavirus pandemic and to reduce the hoarding and racketeering of the sanitizers.

“As for the reduction in the prices of fuel, it has always been our delight to provide our cherished customers with the lowest and most competitive prices on the market while still maintaining the product quality,” CEO of Santol Energy Alhaji Fareed said ahead of the grand opening of a brand new fuel station at Gomoa Mpata in the Central Region.

Grand Opening

The new station which is located close to the Apostle Safo junction in the Central Region is part of the plans by management to expand across every nook and cranny in the country and to provide motorists with superior services.

The new station, as well as the existing ones, is set to provide ‘clean fuel and friendly service’ to its customers under hygienic conditions with safety protocols against the coronavirus pandemic, Alhaji Fareed said.

“Drivers, passengers and their customers can be assured of good hand-washing practices with soap under running water. Drivers on a long-distance journey are to anticipate getting a promo food pack whilst those with long trailers and buses will get their trucks washed for free as drivers take a nap before they continue their long journey,” he added.

Santol Energy which is one of the burgeoning Oil companies in the downstream sector has been meticulous in its service delivery with strict adherence to safety protocols outlined by the regulator.

It only recently received the ISO certification which is a testimony of the company’s reliability for business, productiveness and consumer satisfaction.

Santol Energy organises health screening for tanker drivers

Santol Energy, one of the country’s rapidly growing oil marketing companies is set to organize a health screening exercise for all tanker drivers at the Tema Oil Refinery (TOR).

The exercise which will take place at the OMC car park of the Tema Oil Refinery in September is to help provide quality health for tanker drivers who play an instrumental role in the petroleum downstream sector.

“Most of the drivers do not normally have time to check up and some of them drive at night and over long distances. They are so absorbed in their job that their health becomes secondary to them.

“As a company that has the well being of our stakeholders at heart, we want to embark on this screening to bring the hospital closer to the drivers,” the marketing manager of Santol Energy, Michael Issifu Wepeba, said in an interview.

‘With the rise of glaucoma and cataract, hypertension, diabetes we deem it appropriate to have this exercise for them so that they will know their health status and take appropriate action,” the marketing manager of Santol Energy Michael Issifu Wepebasaid in an interview.

According to him, depending on the severity of the health status, a driver will be referred to the appropriate health institution for a comprehensive check-up.

The health screening, he said, is part of a major corporate social responsibility to be undertaken by Santol Energy.

“As a company, our interest is not only to make a profit. The welfare of our customers, workers and other stakeholders are of profound interest to us as well.

“We demonstrate this through the prices at which we sell our products which are the lowest in the market and our safety regime exercised at our sales outlets are phenomenal” he added.

Santol Energy only recently received an ISO International certification for its business activities which underlines the credibility of its operations right from safety measures, customer satisfaction, human resource management and sales operations.

Michael Issifu Wepeba said the health screening exercise is in line with meeting the international standards of safety not just for their workers but for others who are within the petroleum downstream value chain.

On her part, the Administrator at Santol Energy, said “we take health and safety very critical. We make sure that our operations are conducted with minimal or no incident to our workers and clients.”

She added the health screening exercise is the first of many corporate social responsibility activities the company will embark on.

As one of the local companies in the country, Ms Asare believes it is about time for indigenous companies in the mining and oil sub-sector to be empowered under the local content law and be given a fair share of contracts which she said will have a positive impact on the economy.

Incorporated in 2017, Santol Energy is emerging as one of the trusted oil marketing companies operating with safety and integrity as its hallmark.

The company provides quality assurance products, including ultra-low sulphur diesel, super, RFO at the most competitive prices in the market.
