Tankers carrying over 6 mln gallons of fuel oil to unload cargoes at terminals of Thilawa Port


Tankers carrying over 6 million gallons of fuel oil have arrived at terminals in Thilawa Port located in Thanlyin city. The unloading of cargo will be undertaken in a matter days, according to the Supervisory Committee on Import, Storage and Distribution of Fuel Oil.
Moreover, MT Aulac Vision loaded with 2.9 million gallons of premium diesel and MT Yu Yi carrying 1.6 million gallons of diesel and 1.86 gallons of premium diesel will dock at the terminals of Thilawa Port.
Tracking the fuel oil price spike in international markets, the oil price in the domestic market also slightly increased, according to the committee.
Additionally, 0.02 million gallons of Octane 92 and 2.8 million gallons of premium diesel were unloaded from MT Yu Dong on 10 October, while 0.14 million gallons of Octane 92 were removed from MT Bowmore.
In September, a total of 246.14 million gallons of fuel oil were unloaded at Thilawa Port, including over six million gallons of fuel oil on 25 September and eight million gallons of fuel oil on 28 September.
The committee is inspecting the fuel stations whether they are overcharging or not. The authorities are taking action against those retailers of fuel stations under the Petroleum and Petroleum Products Law 2017 if they are found overcharging rather than the set reference rate.
The committee is ensuring not to have shortage of supply at the private fuel stations in each region and state.
However, an armed group attacked an oil tank truck en route to Myaung petrol station in Monywa city, Sagaing Region in the previous week, causing delays. — TWA/GNLM
