December 3, 2019(MLN): The overall sales of POL products surged by 7% YoY during November 2019 to 1.42 mill tons when compared to 1.33 mill tons in the same month of last year on the account of lower base effect and increased fuel demand across all categories of fuel.
However, the sales volume dropped by 11% MoM in November 2019 due to higher prices of POL products, the slowdown in economic activity and lower production from FO based power plants.
