The “high-grade” M95 petrol has been recalled from selected fuel stations in Oman after several customers complained of its poor quality.
The decision of the recall was announced by the Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MOCI) – but the good news is that the withdrawal only affects some fuel stations in Buraimi and North Batinah.
Moreover, other fuel products such as diesel and M91 petrol will still be available at these stations.
In a statement to the public, the ministry said: “Further to the statement issued by the Ministry on September 3 regarding the reported lack of supply and quality of the fuel product 95 at some fuel stations in the governorates of North Al Batinah and Al Buraimi, the Ministry would like to draw the attention of the public as a precautionary measure, that the Ministry has ordered the withdrawal of stock of fuel product 95 of those stations.
“MOCI has coordinated with the marketing companies and ORPIC (Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Company) to refuel these stations with new stock.
“Because this process may take some time, your trip may temporarily affect the availability of fuel 95 at these stations. We request consumers to go to alternative stations during this period,” the ministry added.
