“Malawi has three months fuel reserves cover amid Covi-19 pandemic”- assures Mera

Malawi has enough fuel

BLANTYRE-(MaraviPost)-The Malawi Energy Regulatory Authority (MERA) on Wednesday, March 25, 2020 assured the nation of enough fuel reserves currently equivalent to forty-three
(43) days for Petrol and eighty-three (83) days for Diesel.

In a press statement signed by MERA Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Collins Magalasi says the country continues to receive Liquid Fuels and Gas (LFG) from the ports of Beira, Nacala and Dar es Salaam without restraint; and stakeholders in the fuel supply industry are alert to ensure an effective and efficient response to any impending disruption to LFG supply.

Although Malawi has not registered any case of coronavirus, the pandemic necessitates a strategic approach to be taken in the preparedness, management and recovery of a potential fuels and gas supply disturbance.

It is in this light that MERA has activated the National Emergency Response Plan and will proceed to work with the National Liquid
Fuels and Gas Emergency Management Committee and Operations Management Group which are provided for in the Response Plan.

MERA lauds all fuel importers, transporters, oil marketing companies, retailers, government ministries and departments, banks and all stakeholders for the great coordinated approach that has been taken and resulted in our country having healthy fuel stocks at a time that the world is under the coronavirus threat.

MERA will continue to update the public of the fuel supply situation in the country as and when necessary.
