HIGH ROCK, Grand Bahama – Prime Minister, the Rt. Hon. Perry Gladstone Christie was in Grand Bahama Thursday morning to participate in Ground Breaking ceremonies for the new Statoil South Riding Point, LLC Administration Building.

 

During his address at the ceremonies, the Prime Minister took the opportunity to inform the public of a Task Force that is in place to deal with Ebola and other health issues. He also advised that Mr. Greg Bartlett, a former Chief of Staff at the Rand Hospital has been recommended to head the Task Force of Grand Bahama, and that the Minister for Grand Bahama, the Hon. Dr. Michael Darville, being an engineer and a medical doctor is among the First Responders.

 

Firstly touching on the proposed Statoil Administration Building, which will be constructed at Statoil terminal in east Grand Bahama and is expected to cost in excess of $3 million, Mr. Christie noted that it also comes as the company continues with further upgrades to its oil storage facility.

 

Mr. Christie on Thursday also took note of the company’s good reputation as being environmentally friendly and a good corporate citizen.

 

Addressing a gathering of top level Statoil management, members of his own Cabinet, and business persons and residents from throughout Grand Bahama the Prime Minister told Statoil owners that just by reputation alone, it was a good fit for the Commonwealth of The Bahamas when they purchased in 2009, the oil transshipment facility.

 

On the subject of being environmentally friendly and using best practices that nation’s leader added that “I have no doubt whatsoever the kind of commitment that you bring to this island of Grand Bahama and our country, through your own reputation for performing at a very high level, when it comes around to environmental promotion and environmental protection.

 

“It is clear that you play a very vital role in the economy of Grand Bahama, and the fact that you are a leading European petroleum conglomerate, representing the largest Scandinavian investment in our country, augurs very well,” he stated.

 

Continuing, he told the gathering that the firm has a wonderful reputation and is said to be the third largest crude oil seller and the second largest gas/oil exporter to Europe operating in 35 countries worldwide.

Philip Brave Davis, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Works and Urban Development; Bent Pedersen, President Statoil Marketing and Trading; Prime Minister Christie; the Hon. Jerome Fitzgerald, Minister of Education, Science and Technology; Jeffrey Munrow, Asset Manager and President, SSRP; Peter Symons, South Riding Point; Delton Russell, Terminal Manager, SSRP; and Arnold Forbes M.P., Executive Chairman, BAIC.

Mr. Christie said that having spoken with the company president, he understands that the firm is now re-inventing how they function, looking at cost containment, etc., but nevertheless committed to expressing confidence in their investment in The Bahamas by the addition of a major $3 million dollar facility.  He pointed out that the company currently stows at its facility both light and heavy crude from various parts of the world with a storage capacity of some 6.5 million barrels.

 

The Prime Minister also informed that Statoil has spent some $250 million in upgrades, all with a view to ensuring that the east Grand Bahama plant has maximum efficiency and effectiveness in the operations on Grand Bahama.  He also took note that during the upgrades, the company had as much as 300 persons working and that the current staff includes some 70 employees.

 

“This new administration building is being constructed at a cost of over $3 million and I am told, using local contractors. That means that they will benefit from this project, ensuring that much of this expenditure is injected into the Grand Bahamian economy,” he said.

 

Mr. Christie was also pleased to note, “Statoil’s approach and record on training has been progressive and commendable. Such an approach augurs well for the future of the company, creating an environment of stability and growing productivity.

 

“I am advised that over the next three years Statoil will carry out another $60 million worth or upgrades, which will bring more life into the Grand Bahamian economy and enhance the global business being conducted at what has become a state-of-the-art crude oil blending and transshipment facility.

 

“It is also of economic importance, so the Public Treasury benefits significantly from through-put phase at this facility and the Bahamas Agricultural and Industrial Corporation benefits from lease rentals,” he informed.  Further, the country’s leader said that was pleased to observe that Statoil is committed to a safe, reliable and efficient import and export operations of worldwide crude.

 

 

Shifting his topic, the Prime Minister mentioned: “As a result of this global concern and critical concern over Ebola, we have assembled the Task Force in New Providence which embraces all islands of our country, with specific reference to Grand Bahama, because of the nature of the businesses here in Grand Bahama, that includes and involves the importation of oil from country or countries in West Africa.

 

“Necessarily we want to be seen to be partners with Statoil as we work with any of the shipping companies here in Grand Bahama.  But, a partnership that involves a very close understanding on the part of the Government, that Statoil being aware of the sensitivity and sensitivities of the possible fears of people, would help us to demonstrate beyond all reasonable doubt that we have put in place maximum safety provisions for the people of Grand Bahama and the people of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas.

 

“In so saying, it was clear to us that the ordinary way of clearing boats with Immigration and Customs ought now to be supplemented by health officials.  Health officials who are sensitized, prepared and trained on this issue of how to protect the country,” he said.

 

Mr. Christie said that companies like Statoil and others must now inform the Government and its agencies well in advance on where a ship is coming from, who is on the ship, to be able to share with the Government the provisions they are making from the point of origin with respect to the ship and even after that, when the ship arrives in The Bahamas it has to be cleared by the Ministry of Health before there is any contact with Bahamian officials.

 

“That is a necessary feature for protecting the country and being seen to do so,” he stated.

 

In that regard the Prime Minister said he wish to advise this morning that the Task Force has agreed to appoint Dr. Greg Bartlett, a former chief of staff, to be the person in command of the Task Force and its works here in Grand Bahama, and to ensure that all the necessary time that will be dedicated to this would be done by him because they did not want to over burden the current chief of staff on an operational basis at the Rand Memorial Hospital.

 

The Prime Minister also made it clear that all companies, be it shipping, air passengers or others must have an understanding and are working together on these new procedures necessary for the protection of the Bahamian people.  (BIS Photos/Vandyke Hepburn)
