EGPC Vice Chairman for Operations, Amr Mostafa, told Egypt Oil & Gas that a decision was taken to pump 38,000 tons of diesel and 18,000 tons of gasoline to all fuel stations in the country to eliminate some of the traffic jams at petrol stations due to lack of petrol 92.

He explained that the quantities of gasoline and diesel supplied to the local markets are sufficient to satisfy the needs of citizens as they represent a 10% increase over normal consumption rates. He added that 80% of the additional quantities were going to Upper Egypt that were suffering a limited number of traffic jams.

He also noted that it was decided to pump 1.2 m LPG cylinders to all the LPG depots till the end of this month.
