Dharmendra Pradhan , union Petroleum Minister, has reportedly expressed confidence that there will be no effect on oil distribution and supply in the country following attacks on the oil stabilisation centres of Saudi oil giant Aramco.
“It is unfortunate that the oil stabilisation centres of Aramco have been attacked. Following the attacks, top executives of Aramco have been contacted. Indian ambassador in Riyadh contacted the senior management of Aramco to ensure a steady supply to India,” Pradhan said.
“We have reviewed our overall crude oil supplies for the month of September with our oil marketing companies (OMCs). We are confident there would be no supply disruption to India. We are closely monitoring the evolving situation,” he added.
