Karachi : Pakistan’s leading energy company, Byco Petroleum Pakistan Limited, is modernizing its logistics operation and is inducting brand new oil tankers for safely transporting petroleum products from its refinery in Mouza Kund across Pakistan. Following OGRA’s new safety protocols and guidelines, Byco is inducting modern oil tankers that comply with the latest OGRA & NHA safety guidelines for ADR Tank Lorries in its fleet for white oil transportation.
At a ceremony to induct the new oil tankers, Mr. Amir Abbassciy, Chief Executive Officer, BPPL, remarked: “Byco’s roll out of state-of-the-art, OGRA compliant oil tankers underscores our commitment to ensure that safety will always be Byco’s top priority.” Adopting industry best practices, Byco intends to completely modernize its white oil fleet of approximately 200 tank lorries to ensure the safe transportation of Byco’s products across Pakistan, consistent with the rules and regulations of transporting petroleum products.

Byco places the utmost importance on safety. In December 2017, Byco conducted the nation’s largest Oil Spill simulation exercise in conjunction with the Pakistan Navy, entitled Barracuda. This exercise tests the readiness of the firm to deal with a maritime loss of containment. Similarly, Byco has put into place Tier 3 oil spill response, making it the only firm in Pakistan having this international standard. Byco regularly conducts safety trainings for its employees, to ensure they are aware of their roles and responsibilities and are prepared in case of any mitigating circumstances.
