(Business in Cameroon) - On October 28, 2019, Okie Johnson Ndoh, Chairman of the Cameroonian Ad Hoc Committee on Imports of Petroleum Products, issued a call for tenders for the importation of 115,000 metric tonnes (MT) of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), commonly known as domestic gas. The said volume is the equivalent of nearly 700,000 cylinders of widely used 12.5 kg-gas cylinders.

Oil companies authorized to import petroleum products into Cameroon are informed that the 115,000 metric tons of LPG are divided into three batches: 60,000 MT, 35,000 MT, and 20,000 MT.

Bidding documents are to be sent to the headquarters of the Hydrocarbon Price Stabilization Fund CSPH in Yaoundé, where counting and auction sessions will be held on November 12, 2019.

Let’s note that according to the ministry of energy, Cameroonians' access to LPG has greatly improved. Between 2011 and 2018, the ministry reveals, consumption of this modern cooking energy rose from 67,000 MT to nearly 110,000 MT. This represents an average rise of 9% per year and 64% over the entire 7 years. This year, consumption has increased to 115,000 MT.
