Puma’s negotiation for airport service station ongoing

The National,Thursday June 23rd, 2016

PUMA Energy is still in the process of having a service station established at Jackson Airport, government and corporate affairs manager Bruce Apana says.
“Our plan for a retail service station are progressing.  Our plan is for the service station to be located at the ATS junction, on the other side of the Jackson Airport runway,” he said.
Apana said the process of seeking approval from Independent Consumer and Competition Commission for entry into Jackson Airport with regards to Jet A1 fuel was on-going.
“Puma Energy PNG Limited has applied to the ICCC for approval for entry into Jackson Airport for the supply of Jet A1.
“This is a public process and is still underway. Jet A1 is the fuel used by planes.”
The ICCC had said early this year that it was seeking submissions and comments from stakeholders of the aviation and oil industries, plus the general public regarding the authorisation application from Puma Energy.
ICCC noted that Puma was seeking authorisation to enter into a lease agreement with the National Airports Corporation Limited.
