Brunei Darussalam


On the eve of Energy Day 2010, curious at how the pump prices would be adjusted to reflect the one-day government initiative, I popped by my neighbourhood gas station for a first hand look at the systematic procedures. Years back, I was the project manager for the station’s Point-of-Sale installation so last night was a walk down memory lane except the station is presently undergoing renovation to accommodate expansion plans so very little of what I remembered was there anymore. I applaud all proactive efforts to create national awareness but it’s an initiative that has received mixed reaction from the public. Check out today’s papers for comments from commuters. As far as the price adjustments, they were carried out by contractor SAHID which handles maintenance of the pumps and I share these behind-the-scenes pictures. Five teams were deployed last night across four districts with the Brunei-Muara District getting an extra hand. To show your support, make a PLEDGE and be a part of our green community.
