Minister for Energy Hammad Azhar says country has sufficient stock of furnace oil to meet the country's energy needs during winter season.

In a series of tweets on Sunday, he said Pakistan faced a moderate shortage of furnace oil in summer season as the power plants ran more than last year due to low water levels in dams.

The Minister informed that a new refinery policy is being finalised to shift refineries away from the production of furnace oil.
