Malawi Energy Regulatory Authority (the Authority) would like to assure the general public that the country continues to have sufficient internal fuel stocks and has in place strategies to ensure security of fuel supply.

Section 5 of the Liquid Fuels and Gas (Production and Supply) 2004 Act mandates the Authority to ensure that the Liquid Fuels and Gas supply in the country is adequate, reliable, efficient, and economical. To achieve this mandate, the Authority licences several stakeholders across the Fuel and Gas supply chain whose performance is closely monitored in line with the provisions of the Energy laws. These stakeholders include Importers, Transporters, Oil Marketing Companies and Retailers.

The Authority wishes to assure the general public that the country continues to enjoy healthy fuel stock levels and that importers have adequate fuel stock balances with their international suppliers from all ports of Beira, Nacala and Dar es Salaam. Furthermore, the Authority continues to engage all stakeholders involved in the fuel supply chain to implement strategies to ensure seamless transition to new fuel supply contracts.

The Authority will continue to update the public on the fuel supply situation in the country.
