NOC and BPMC announce departure of second fuel and gas convoy to the South

National Oil Corporation (NOC) and the Brega Petroleum Marketing Company (BPMC) announce the departure of a second fuel convoy on December 26, 2018, of 113 trucks carrying 3.94 million litres of vehicle fuel, 2.6 million litres of diesel, and 80 metric tons of cooking gas from Misurata to the Sebha distribution centre in southern Libya.
 
This initiative is part of NOC and BPMC’s ongoing efforts to ensure the continuous delivery of fuel to the South at official prices, and the curbing of fuel price manipulation and smuggling in the region. 
 
Mr Imad Benkoura, chairman of the BPMC management committee commented: “Ensuring that southern Libyans have constant access to fuel products is a priority. NOC and BPMC are working with security forces and southern municipalities to ensure the transparent and efficient delivery of fuel, diesel and cooking gas. Libyan citizens have a key role in helping prevent smuggling and raising awareness through the reporting of illicit behaviour in the fuel supply-chain.” 
 
BPMC will publish daily reports on all delivered quantities on its Facebook page. NOC and BPMC call upon all Libyan citizens to report any distribution violations witnessed, including price manipulation, the illicit sale of fuel, and irregularities in gas station working hours. Citizens are encouraged to directly contact local municipalities or report irregularities via the official BPMC Facebook page.
 
This shipment follows a similar delivery last week of 640,000 litres of vehicle fuel to the Brak AlShatii municipality, 250,000 litres to the AlBawanis municipality, 1.7 million litres to the Sabha municipality, 540,000 litres of vehicle fuel and 100,000 litres of diesel to Murzuq, and 420,000 litres of vehicle fuel and 100,000 litres of diesel to Ghat and Obari.
 
The chairman of the Presidency Council recently commended NOC and BPMC efforts to deliver fuel to the region, underscoring Brega’s exclusive jurisdiction and responsibility for supervising fuel supply to the South and its subsequent distribution.
