Fuel stocks sufficient for 5 days in Almaty
Almaty. October 31. KazTAG - Fuel stocks are sufficient for five days in Almaty.
"If no more fuel is delivered, it will be enough for 5 days, but fuel is delivered every day," said Daulet Yerkimbayev, deputy head of business department, innovational-industrial development of Almaty.
"There is big agiotage about lack of fuel among the population. In reality the situation is not that pity as people think. But anyway people come and refuel full tanks, canisters, due to such flow the stations cannot service such a big flow," he added.
For this reason, gas stations have to sell fuel under restrictions.
In his words, new volumes of fuel will be delivered in Almaty since November 1.
"As a whole, the fire (at Pavlodar refinery-KazTAG) may have affected (fuel deficit in Almaty), as fuel production lowered by 50%," he added.
