The Directorate calls on all sectors not to correct the General Directorate of Oil and Facilities and to hold it solely responsible for securing their needs, which we acknowledge are right, given that the file is thorny and complex and involves several factors such as severe power cuts and storage operations, which resulted in a sharp increase in demand for diesel.
