Government has assured the nation that there are enough fuel stocks in the country.
Ministry of Energy and Water Development Permanent Secretary Emeldah Chola says national diesel stocks stand at 36 million liters, representing 16 days of national consumption.
Brigadier General Chola says the reserves also have 5.8 million litres of petrol to last five days of national consumption.
General Chola says this does not include stocks that the Oil Marketing companies have in their storage facilities.
She says 6 million litres of petrol is in transit from Dar-es- Salaam while 20 million litres are being loaded on urgent basis.
General Chola says the 26 million litres of petrol translate into 20 days of national consumption.
She has assured the nation that fuel is being imported as per normal schedule while INDENI Refinery is producing.
She also explained that the ship of contaminated crude feedstock that was rejected will be replaced by a new supplier that the government has engaged.
Gen Chola said the replacement is expected in the third week of February, 2016.
She has since appealed to all fuel consumers to go about their normal business without anxiety or panic as the country has enough fuel.
This is contained in a statement issued to ZNBC News by Gen Chola.
