Osinergmin: taps in Puerto Maldonado do not have fuel due to road blockades

The Supervisory Agency for Investment in Energy and Mining (Osinergmin), together with the Prosecutor’s Office, the District Prefecture, the Ombudsman’s Office, Indecopi and the National Police, carried out operations at various water taps Puerto Maldonado, in Mother of God, to verify fuel inventories and monitor that establishments comply with reporting their updated prices.

This is how they have reported that establishments no longer have sufficient stock of fuel, after blockades at different points of the access road to Puerto Maldonado. Among them is the Laberinto area, up to the town of Santa Rosa, where 17 tankers with 149,550 gallons of diesel and gasoline have been paralyzed, which were in charge of supplying, for a few days, Puerto Maldonado and Inambari. It should be noted that the cisterns have been permanently monitored through satellite GPS technology.

Regarding the supply of gas cylinders, the only LPG bottling plant in the area, the company BIOGAS SAC, remains closed due to lack of stock. Likewise, its staff is awaiting the arrival of a tanker with 10,000 gallons of LPG, retained since January 5 due to the blockades.

Along these lines, the supervisory entity informed the Regional Citizen Security Committee that it is evaluating proposals and alternatives to find a way out of the problem of shortages and, thus, prevent citizens from being more affected.
