President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has dedicated a newly constructed Fuel Unloading Facility at the Liberia Petroleum Refining Company`s (LPRC) Petroleum Storage Terminal in Monrovia.

At a well attended ceremony by an array of government officials and development partners of the Liberia held on December 20, 2017 at the Product Storage Terminal in Monrovia, the Liberian leader recounted the state of the country's infrastructure which she termed as alarming and deplorable at the time but was marveled at the unimaginable and gratifying changes.

The Liberian leader said she was delighted that two critical projects that the country's economy depends on, the Fuel Unloading Facility and the Marginal Warf were completed. President Sirleaf thanked the World Bank and the European Union for their supports in completing these projects. 

Speaking earlier, LPRC’s Managing Director, Jackson Fiah Doe, Jr. thanked President Sirleaf for prioritizing the restoration of the country's broken infrastructure and putting Liberia on an irreversible path. Mr. Doe said that the construction of a modern state-of-the-art Fuel Unloading Facility will enhance operational efficiency by making it easier, safer and quicker in the discharge of petroleum products into the LPRC's shore tanks and eliminate the payment of demurrage which usually affects the company's profitability.  

Also speaking, Mr. David F. Williams, Managing Director of the National Port Authority (NPA) lauded Madam Sirleaf for lending her support to the restoration of the NPA’s infrastructure, which according to him has made the leadership of NPA to be proud. The NPA boss pointed out that the construction of the FUF represents not only a milestone achievement by the Government of Liberia, but a major leap in the strive to make the country’s port facilities regionally competitive and efficient.  "Given the size of tankers and the quantity of products that will be discharged at a particular time, we are confident that the country fuel supply will always be high thus alleviating fear of shortage" the NPA boss intoned.  
Mr. Williams promised to enhance working relationship with LPRC and petroleum stakeholders to ensure the viability of the new oil jetty. 

It may be recalled that in 2012, the Government of Liberia through the Ministry of Public Works with funding from the World Bank signed a contract with TecnoFab Gammon Joint Venture (India) for the construction of a modern Fuel Unloading Facility (FUF). The project which experienced several setbacks due to the medical emergency occasioned by the Ebola outbreak cost US$15.3 million United States dollars.
