SA public sector gets energised with Gulfstream

Gulfstream Energy has been selected as one of the independent wholesalers to be awarded a contract for the supply of fuel products and services across a number of South African government departments.

The company is already a supplier of quality and innovative petroleum solutions to a wide range of customers within all market sectors of the local economy.

The five-year tender will see it being responsible for the delivery of millions of litres of fuel per annum to more than 100 different sites nationwide.

Says Shane Jegels, CEO of Gulfstream Energy: “What this means is that we have been mandated to meet all fuel requirements for all entities within various departments; including our country’s hospitals, prisons, police stations, military bases and naval facilities.”

Jegels stresses that the first considerations in the awarding of any contract should always be based on capability, experience and efficiency. “It is encouraging that the government is entrusting key business delivery to independent wholesalers,” he adds.

Gulfstream Energy is currently responsible for delivering more than one percent of our country’s fuel requirements.

“We have a wealth of experience in the public sector with regard to the supply of fuel products and services, and, as importantly, when it comes to working with government processes and operations,” says Jegels.

“We believe that the value we bring to this contract is as much about smooth processes and seamless operations as it is about the supply of fuel products and services,” he adds.
