2 of 7 Ipil gas stations obtain compliance certificate - DOE

PDFPrintE-mail

IPIL, Zamboanga Sibugay - Out of the seven (7) gasoline refilling stations in Ipil, Zamboanga Sibugay only two (2) have complete documents for the procurement of a compliance certificate from the DOE. This is what Fred Paclar, a representative from the Department of Energy (DOE)-Field Office based in Davao City said in an interview.

Paclar, together with other representatives from the DOE, visited the municipality of Ipil for a calibration and general inspection of all existing gasoline refilling stations which was personally requested by the Committee Chairman for Trade and Industry of the Sangguniang Bayan (SB) of Ipil, SB Member Alberto Alcoriza, Jr.

During the inspection, the DOE Inspecting Team checked every pumping gas station. A calibration bucket was used by the DOE personnel to see if the pumping stations refills accurately.

According to Paclar, all pumping stations should be calibrated to ensure accurate readings on the quantity of gasoline products that customers get from gas refilling stations.

He further said that the DOE team also got samples of the gasoline products from every gasoline refilling station to check if certain standards are followed like octane levels, etc.

“We are very particular with the accuracy of the pumping stations so that the consumers get quality gasoline products and accurate quantity so we are strictly implementing standards in our calibrations and sampling”, said Paclar.
The samples are set to be sent to the National Office of the DOE for laboratory tests and the results along with the recommendations from the said government agency will be sent to the concerned gas refilling station.

SB Member Alcoriza also expressed his thanks to the DOE team for answering his call for a calibration and general inspection to the gasoline stations in Ipil to protect the interests of the consumers as well as the owners and operators of the said gas stations because they can check whether their services need improvement and their facilities more upgrading and standardization.

Alcoriza also explained that the safety and protection of the motorists and the public as a whole is also one of the main reasons why the inspection was conducted.

“I am thankful that the DOE never failed Ipil in its request for an inspection because we really need this kind of activity every now and then for us to protect the interest of our business operators and more importantly the public. The safety of the Ipileños as well as the Sibugaynons is also one of our reasons why we requested for this inspection”, explained Alcoriza.

Department of Trade and Industry (DTI)-Zamboanga Sibugay Provincial Chief, Edito Lumacang, and other representatives from the Municipal Treasurer’s Office of Ipil also came along with the DOE Inspecting Team to personally witness the inspection.

However, Paclar and his team were slightly dismayed when the result of the inspection revealed that there were some pumping stations that have inaccurate readings in their refilling of gasoline products. The DOE team immediately sealed the said defective gas pumping stations and imposed penalties to the owners and operators.

“We have no choice but to implement sanctions on these gas stations because they have violated our regulations. The penalty is also based from the existing national mandate from the DOE and the owners can only reopen their sealed gas pumping stations if they would fix them and pass another calibration test and after paying penalties imposed on them”, Paclar pointed out.

Gas stations that have incomplete papers for securing the compliance certificate of the DOE were also given sanctions and further recommendations to completely satisfy the requirements set by the DOE for a gas refilling station.

Some motorists appreciated the inspection conducted by the local government of Ipil through the DOE because it also gave them the chance to identify gas stations with defective pumping stations and patronize those that have accurate and quality gasoline products.

Alcoriza concluded that the result of the inspection would prompt him to fully and religiously enforce and implement standard schedules of calibration and inspection to all gas stations which is every six (6) months.

“We will be very strict now and follow the standard schedule for inspection and calibration which is every six months”, ended Alcoriza.

Gas station pumps are regulated by the government by a bureau or division centered on standards and weights. In the Philippines, the DOE regulates and inspects gas stations to keep the sale of gasoline fair for consumers. Inspections are routinely done throughout the year for retail gas stations. Tests are employed to check calibration of the pumps to ensure a fair meter count and quality of the product. (NBE-PIA9/P. Lontua, Ipil Sibugay)
