Attock Refinery closes its main facility because of worries about oil smuggling.

Details indicate that because of the widespread fuel smuggling in the domestic market, the large diesel supplies that have caused the main unit to close have not been released.

In correspondence addressed to the Petroleum Division and the Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA), the Attock Refinery stated, “We have closed down our main crude distillation unit, which has a capacity of 32,400 barrels per day.”

As a result of fuel being smuggled into the nation, the refinery claimed that the oil marketing corporations were not purchasing fuel from them.

According to the letter, the main unit of Attock Refinery has been shut down and is currently running at 33 percent capacity due to the build-up of a massive stock of diesel.

According to the letter, the refinery may close entirely if the oil marketing corporations don’t buy fuel.

Leading the way in Pakistan’s petroleum refining industry is Attock Refinery Limited (ARL). With 53,400 barrels per day (bpd) of name plate capacity, it is now a modern, state-of-the-art refinery.
