The Chronicle Herald

Dartmouth-based Maritime Fuels Ltd. has filed for bankruptcy.

The fuel delivery company gave notice of bankruptcy on Thursday, listing Pricewaterhousecoopers Inc as the insolvency trustee who will deal with the company’s creditors. The trustee will notify creditors and call a meeting soon. The provincial government sent out a notice Friday, warning the company’s customers to stop any scheduled payments.

“Customers on a prepayment plan for their home heating fuel should contact their financial institution or credit card company and stop those payments right away,” the news release said.

Anyone who has already paid for fuel they didn’t or won’t receive should contact Pricewaterhousecoopers. The province’s statement said it’s unknown how many customers are on a prepayment plan.
