February 20, 2020: PSO Management has decided to resume the company’s operations at the Kaemari Terminal, Karachi.
After careful review of the Health & Safety situation at the Kaemari and based on consultation with relevant stakeholders, the management of the company has decided to begin limited operations at the initial stage.
The health & Safety of the PSO staff and contractors is the top priority of the company. In case the situation remains normal, PSO will start its operations on a full scale later during the day.
With the resumption of fuel supply from Kaemari, the supply of POL products to Karachi is expected to improve significantly.
During the last 36 hours, PSO teams, the company’s dealers and their staff, and contractors have been working round the clock to ensure an uninterrupted supply of POL products to Karachi.
Most of the company sites in the city were topped-up more than twice, and in areas with high demand, thrice in the last 24 hours. This enabled PSO in amicably managing the increased demand for POL products from customers which remained more than usual.
The company has ample stock of fuel available in Pakistan. With the opening of the Kaemari, all 23-company terminal in Pakistan is supplying petroleum products to all parts of the company, including Karachi, in an efficient and smooth manner.
