Brega oil company says there is no fuel crisis in Tripoli

A Libyan oil worker at a refinery inside the Brega oil complex, in eastern Libya, on Feb. 26. Production at Brega has dropped by almost 90 percent amid the country's crisis because many employees have fled, and few ships are coming to the port.

Brega Company’s gas and oil marketing committee confirmed Thursday that Anwar Libya vessel arrived in Tripoli with 25 million liters of fuel, adding that preparations are underway to distribute the fuel to all petrol stations in the capital.

“The stockpile in Tripoli is very well-operated till today and there is no need for panic.” The company said on its Facebook page.

The company announced that it is taking the necessary measures to end the crowdedness of cars at the gas stations, asking the workers at Tripoli port to tighten security measures where the vessel is anchored.

Nowadays people in Tripoli are standing in long queues in their cars to fill their cars with fuel after they heard rumors about lack of fuel stockpile in the city.
