The Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Limited (BOST) has assured the general public of adequate fuel to meet national demand for up to 43 days.

BOST revealed this in a disclaimer issued in response to media publications which supposed that the accessible fuel would suffice for 13 days solely.

According to the company, the precise amount of fuel accessible surpasses that carried within the publications and nullifies any apprehension about fuel scarcity.

“The allegation is unfounded, and we wish to dispel it,” the discharge said.

According to the discharge, the publication misinterpreted the managing director’s feedback.

The managing director said “as we converse, there aren’t any strategic shares in storage. The strategic shares levy was zeroed out within the year 2006.

“The fuel shares in our tanks are financed via preparations with monetary establishments which require we sell inside an affordable time to keep away from refinancing.

“Instead of the expected minimum of six weeks of national demand in storage as per the second mandate, BOST currently has stocks which can only last 13 days in the event no further imports of products are carried.”
