NPA removes subsidy on residual fuel oil

The National Petroleum Authority (NPA) has announced to the general public, particularly stakeholders in the oil marketing sector, that the subsidy on residual fuel oil (RFO) has been suspended.

“The suspension of the policy to subsidise RFO is in line with the directive from the Ministry of Energy as an interim measure to ease the financial burden on the Price Stabilization and Recovery Account (PSRA),” a statement issued by the Chief Executive of the Authority, Dr Mustapha Abdul-Hamid, said.
