London, 7 July 2020:
A group of mayors representing the mountainous and southern regions and Tripoli discussed on Monday morning ways to solve the cooking gas supply crisis in particular and fuel shortages in general affecting their municipalities.
The meeting was held during a visit by the mayors to the headquarters of the Inma Oil and Gas Company in Tripoli – part of the Economic and Social Development (ESDF).
At the meeting, Enma’s system for filling household gas cylinders and their technical specifications were reviewed and introduced to the mayors.
Enma reported that at the end of the meeting, it received orders for the acquisition of the company’s domestic gas cylinder filling system from the municipalities.
It is worth mentioning that a technical committee consisting of the Enma Company, the NOC’s Brega Oil Marketing Company and the Ministry of Local Government has been formed to oversee the distribution of gas cylinder filling systems to municipalities.
Brega, the traditional company charged with distributing cooking gas has failed to meet demand and deliver supply away from the coast and deep in Libya’s interior. Cooking gas cylinders have, unsurprisingly, been doing swift business in the black market at anything from 10-30 times official prices.
