OGRA warns of action over hindering fuel supply

Ogra suggests 2pc increase in diesel prices

ISLAMABAD: The Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (Ogra) has taken notice of disruption being created in countrywide fuel supply and warned that strict action would be taken over hindering supply to petrol pumps.

A spokesman for the Ogra said that oil marketing companies have been directed to ensure uninterrupted fuel supply to the petrol pumps and enforcement teams have been formed in this regard.

The regulatory authority said that its enforcement teams are also on the ground to monitor the situation and warned that anyone trying to hinder the fuel supply would be dealt with accordingly.

The warning came in the backdrop of the Pakistan Petroleum Dealers Association (PPDA) announcing to observe a countrywide strike on November 25 (tomorrow) against low-profit margins.

Federal Minister for Energy Hammad Azhar also responded to the strike call and said that the next meeting of the Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) would decide on the profit margin demanded by petroleum dealers on fuel prices.
