Petroleum Authority deputy chairman Amr Mostafa has said that the authority regularly provides the local market with surplus butane gas, over the daily amounts required.
“We provide 1.175 million cylinders daily,” he claimed.
Mostafa added that two ships arrived in Suez on Thursday carrying 15,600 tons of butane, and another arrived in Alexandria carrying 11,000 tons.
“We are importing more shipments to cover the next two months,” he said.
