ISLAMABAD: The Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) has issued warning to the Oil Marketing Companies (OMC) for shortage of fuel in Southern Punjab.

The OGRA has warned the OMCs that their licenses could be cancelled along with hefty fines over closure of fuel stations in Southern Punjab.

The Vice Chairman of OGRA has conveyed a clear message to the representatives of the OMCs on Wednesday that the ongoing artificial fuels crisis will not be tolerated at all.

He warned of strict action, against fuel pumps’ closure, and hefty fines to the OMCs, if fuel supply would not be resumed in Southern Punjab soon.

According to the OGRA officials, there is no shortage of fuel products and sufficient stock of all needed fuels is available in the country while the fuel dealers are troubling the people for personal gains only.

The available stock of petrol is sufficient for fulfilling needs of 16 days and high-speed diesel stock for 30 days across the country, told the OGRA officials.
