“We hope diesel crisis is resolved, after Tripoli and Zahrani facilities return to work,” says Brax

The member of the Syndicate of Gas Station Owners George Brax hoped that “a solution is looming on the horizon regarding the fuel shortage crisis, after the oil facilities in Tripoli and Al-Zahrani returned to pumping this commodity into the local markets.”

Brax pointed out that “these facilities have always secured 30 percent of market’s needs, as they are considered a guarantee for social security. Those responsible for securing the dollar to import diesel cannot watch it stopping again and not securing this commodity for citizens, especially that this commodity is more than vital for heating and for the production of electric energy. Without this commodity our daily lives are paralyzed in light of the massive and almost complete rationing adopted by the Electricité du Liban.”

‎Brax said in a statement, “As for the ship carrying 42,000 tons of diesel, which had an accident in Amchit and was towed to Dora port last Sunday, it is still facing difficulties to unload it.”

He appealed to those concerned “to speed up finding the required solutions.” To be able to unload it as quickly as possible.”
