I am pleased to report on the 150 day deliverables set by the Liberia Petroleum Refining Company (LPRC) in alignment with goals set by Her Excellency Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.
LPRC currently has a net income of US$3.5 million for 2012 YTD. This represents a 40% increase over the budgeted amount of 2.5 million. Gross Revenue for the period under review was US$8.9 million. This also represents a 7% increase over the budgeted amount of US$8.3 million.
In March, 2012, we paid USD$1,959,677 to the government in income taxes. In June 2012 US$750,000 was paid for dividend and a 2% presumptive tax of US$89,935 was paid in April, 2012.
We have ensured petroleum product sufficiency on the Liberian market by supplying the entire country on a daily basis by holding each petroleum Importer accountable for meeting importation targets. During the last 150 days a total of 49,767,463 gallons of mixed products was imported into the country. This is a 6 percent increase in the importation schedule compared to this time 2011.
During the period under review Mother-well Bridge Limited (MBL) and its sub-contractor (West Construction) began the construction phase of the rehabilitation and expansion project at the LPRC Product Storage Terminal. MBL has commenced the construction of the new petroleum laboratory, Fire Water Tank, piping network from the tank to the pump house. This phase of the project is slated to be completed by December, 2012.

A tracking software was installed with priority access to monitor the movement of petroleum product. This resulted in accurate reporting and also reduced over time by 30%.
