Oman plans to raise production of regular grade petrol and reduce output of super grade petrol in order to meet a growing demand for the former product in recent months, a report said.
“We have to match it (a higher demand for regular petrol). Whatever the market needs, we will supply,” said Salim bin Nasser Al Aufi, Undersecretary at the Ministry of Oil and Gas.
Normally, 90 per cent of consumption in Oman is super grade (M95), while regular petrol (M90) constituted only 10 per cent of overall consumption, he noted.
Refineries in Oman are planning to produce a better quality M91 petrol grade to replace M90 this year, he added.
