ISLAMABAD – Objecting to the federal government de­cision of switching to EURO V Gasoline specification, the Oil Firm Advisory Committee (OCAC) has stated that it’ll in­crease the nation’s oil invoice by Rs 25-33 billion every year and gas value by as much as Rs 7 per litre.

It primarily origi­nates from Arab Gulf/Area­al refiners /blenders. With the proposed finish level (FBP) of 205 C and Sulphur content material of 10 ppm, greater than 50% of this amount can’t be equipped from present sources and the shortfall must be sourced from Europe.

This might lead to larger freight prices of minimal $3-$4/bbl, equally the product value is estimated to be round $2-3 /bbl larger than present Mogas value, it stated.

This roughly means a cumulative enhance of Rs 5 to 7 per litre to the Shopper whereas it interprets into an extra value to the Nation to the tune of $ 150 to 200 million per an­num or Rs 25-33 billion per an­num.
