The Energy minister informed that CPC has informed him that the suppliers that had confirmed Petrol, Diesel and CrudeOil Shipments to arrive earlier this week and next week has communicated the inability to fulfill the deliveries on time for banking and logistic reasons.
Until the next shipments are at Port and unloaded, Public Transport, Power Generation and Industries will be given a priority. Limited stocks of Diesel and Petrol will be distributed to limited stations throughout next week and request the public not to line up for fuel.
