Over 6 Million Litres of Fuel Delivered to Northern Communities during Winter

The GNWT is marking a success for their winter fuel resupply program after reporting nearly 6,300,000 liters of fuel were delivered.

While this year saw a shorter than average winter season, along with higher pressures from a shortened barge season, the GNWT was still able to deliver 6,290,000 litres of fuel along the winter roads, keeping several communities stocked up over the winter. The fuel that was delivered consisted of 4,757,000 litres of diesel, 1,246,000 litres of gasoline, and 294,000 litres of jet fuel.

All of this was managed by the Petroleum Products Program, which provides these fuel services to 16 different communities across the North, which are not served by private companies. Six of the 16 communitites are the ones who benefit from the GNWT’s winter resupply; Colville Lake, Délı̨ne, Gametì, Nahanni Butte, Sambaa K’e, and Wekweètì. Additional fuel was also delivered to Tulita and Fort Good Hope this year.
