Management of the Shell Filling Station at Atimpoku, near the Adomi Bridge in the Eastern Region, has been closed after it was detected that contaminated fuel was being sold to customers.
There were complaints that water-mixed fuel was dispensed to drivers on Sunday, August 28.
But management explained in a statement that water had seeped into one of the underground storage tanks after a heavy downpour in the day.
“As soon as the team discovered water contamination, sales at the station were stopped.
“Assistance is being provided to impacted customers,” management said in the statement on Monday, August 29.
Internal investigations have been launched and the fuel-distribution company has assured that “all necessary remedial steps will be taken before the station reopens”.
“We remain committed to providing best quality fuels to our customers.”
