Manaseer Oil and Gas Company General Director Eng. Yasser Manaseer, mentioned that he expected the three major oil derivatives marketing companies to sign the special agreement to import fuel directly within a week.
Mr. Yasser Manaseer explained that this agreement to be signed by the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources concerns the mechanism of pricing imported products, and logistic operations.
Oil derivatives marketing companies operating in the local market were expected to begin direct import last month, but the special agreement was delayed for technical financial reasons which have been solved.
The three companies will begin the first phase with importing diesel.
