KUWAIT CITY, May 31: Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) has informed Oula Fuel Marketing Company that it is illegal to impose a fee of 200 fils for filling cars with fuel and it will be recorded as a violation if the latter insists on doing so, reports Al-Rai daily quoting sources. Sources told the daily that the two parties met recently to discuss the congestion at fuel stations due to manpower shortage. Sources confirmed that Oula Fuel Marketing Company has been allowed to mix selfservice and assisted service, provided this is done through a specific pumping system.
Sources added the company prefers to hire more workers soon. During the meeting, the idea of imposing a symbolic fee for the assisted fuel pumping service was rejected once again. KNPC will conduct regular visits to fuel stations in order to follow up their performance until the employment crisis is resolved and the condition stabilizes, sources added.
On the other hand, sources said another meeting will be held with Al-Sour Company to tackle the latest developments regarding the manpower crisis that the company is also experiencing now. Sources pointed out the company’s condition is better than that of Oula Fuel Marketing Company, and its workers are expected to arrive in June.
