The country’s gas crisis appears to be solved. The Ministerio de Ambiente y Energía has approved a third vendor to enter the market.
In addition, the Tribunal Contencioso has authorized both of a feuding couple who operate Gas Zeta to each market the product, said the Refinadora Costarricense de Petróleo, which provides the gas.
The Gas Zeta couple are in the midst of a divorce.
Refinadora Costarricense also said it would increase its distribution hours at its Moín facility to accommodate distributors. The liquid petroleum gas is used by many Costa Ricans for cooking and heating water. The refinery is the only source.
