On Tuesday, the Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) “strongly refuted” reports that Pakistan’s petroleum supply was running low.
“OGRA strongly rebuts the speculations on petrol/diesel shortages,” said OGRA spokesperson Imran Ghaznavi.
“The nation has enough gasoline and diesel on hand to cover demand for 18 and 37 days, respectively.
He said, “Additionally, ships carrying 101,000MT of gasoline are at berth/outer anchorage, and the local refineries are doing their part to meet the demand for petroleum goods.
The announcement follows the worst outage in months on Monday, which prompted rumors that Pakistan’s energy plants were running low on fuel.
The nation has had two significant grid outages since October, the most recent of which started on Monday morning during the height of the winter season. Due to a lack of power for the pumps, many individuals are also without access to running water.
