We are confident there would be no supply disruption to India: Pradhan

Petroleum minister Dharmendra Pradhan on Tuesday, 17 Sep, 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.

Evolving situation closely monitored

"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.

September offtake of oil has been completed; for continued supply, all options kept open

Pradhan further said that Aramco officials have ensured that there will be no impact on distribution.

"September offtake of oil has been completed. We will have to wait to see what actual impact it will have on Indian markets. For continued supply we have kept all options open," he said.
