Restaurant owners along the West Coast want to know why they received no notification from the National Petroleum Corporation (NPC) or the Barbados National Oil Company Ltd about a gas outage which left them in crisis from December 22.

Several said they called the two entities repeatedly after they were unable to prepare meals but they either got no response or in the case of the NPC, only a caretaker was available to speak to them.

“We have been reaching out – we have been calling the NPC, calling the national oil company but basically there has been no official response, other than that they are aware there are gas issues but no answers as to how long this is going to be,” said a concerned restaurant manager.
