Fuel stocks at emergency network between 35%, 45%

The amount of fuel at emergency network stations was between 35% and 45% at 08:00 on Tuesday, but there were sites in seven districts with less than a third of the total stock.

According to data from the National Entity for the Energy Sector (ENSE), the 315 petrol stations of the emergency network (REPA) had, on average, 35.65% of their total petrol capacity and 45.95% of diesel.

According to ENSE data, there were 22 REPA stations that had, this morning, 20.6% of the total 'stock' of petrol and 21.6% of diesel, in Faro which is where the stocks were lowest.

All REPA petrol stations have to inform ENSE twice a day of the quantity of fuel (diesel and petrol) they have available.

This obligation stems from the need to monitor the situation of fuel stocks at filling stations during the strike by drivers of dangerous goods, which is in its second day.

On Monday, the drivers started a strike for an indefinite period with the aim of claiming from the employers' association - National Association of Public Road Hauliers of Goods (ANTRAM) - compliance with the agreement signed in May, which provides for wage increases.

Also on Monday, the government decreed a civilian requisition as it considered that the minimum services were not being met.

The civil requisition is effective until August 21, 2019, said an order signed by the ministers of the interior, Eduardo Cabrita, and the environment, João Pedro Matos Fernandes, which was published in the Diário da República on Monday night.
