MOSCOW, February 15 (Itar-Tass) – The fuel-supply situation in Russia’s regions remains stable, an official at the Russian Energy Ministry said on Friday, summing up results of the control headquarters’ meeting, adding, there is no threat of fuel shortage on the country’s market.
“The biggest part of Russia’s regions is supplied with fuel stably. The country’s regions have got permanent fuel reserves in the period of at least ten days, excluding the Omsk region, whose reserves are traditionally a bit smaller than in other territories of the country due to the regional features,” the official said.
“In order to raise fuel reserves in the Sakhalin region and the Kamchatka territory, in the Korsakov seaport the Patriot tanker is loading off the winterized diesel fuel in the period up to ten days, as well as the reserves of the Arctic blend for 2.5 days, the AI-92 most popular gasoline blend for nine days, and the AI-95 premium gasoline blend for the term of 13 days,” the official said.
“There were no immediate reports on the problems with fuel supplies, which can require urgent steps of the Energy Ministry or regional authorities,” the official said.
In addition, the situation with jet fuel supplies to the airport of the Moscow Air Hub and other big cities of the country also remains stable. The airports of the country have got sufficient jet fuel reserves, which allow them to maintain the normal mode of activity within the period from six to 58 days.
