The Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) has advised the Chief Secretary (Punjab) to take strict action against hoarders of petrol and diesel and shared the list of illegal storage identified through market intelligence to avoid deliberate shortages in the province.
OGRA has also disseminated its enforcement teams to check storage and ensure a smooth supply of petroleum products in the province.
Here’s the list of illegal petrol/diesel storage across Punjab:
|S. #||Illegal Fuel Storages in Punjab (Locations)|
|1||Near Total Pump, 18 Hazari|
|2||On the right side of PSO Oil Depot Chak Pirana, District Gujrat|
|3||Opposite Al-Ghani Petroleum (PSO) storage warehouse on main GT Road towards Islamabad 700 meters, Kharian|
|4||Oil storage in Chak Pirana|
|6||18-Hazari Near Canal Bridge|
|7||Near Shell Pump, Shafiq FS, Shorkot City|

It is pertinent to mention here that a fuel shortage crisis has apparently hit the country amid insufficient imports and local availability of petrol and high-speed diesel.
Many petrol stations in Punjab’s major and minor cities, particularly Lahore, Gujranwala, and Faisalabad have so far seen the worst of it where many petrol pumps have little to no supply of petrol for several days.
