The Pakistan Railways has started its fuel management system, it was announced on Friday.

PR CEO Amir Ali Baloch said a new agreement had been made with the Pakistan State Oil (PSO), which would now be responsible for ensuring a consistent fuel feed to the railway’s oil supply facilities.

“The PSO has the latest fuel management technology, which will now benefit the railway’s operation,” he added.

The PR CEO said the railway’s fuel supply centres are set to undergo upgrades to meet the international benchmarks in line with the standards set by the Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (Ogra).

“Under the agreement, the railway’s fuel supply centres will not only be insured according to global standards but will also witness the installation of the world's top firefighting systems.”

Baloch said this initiative was currently being kicked off in Karachi and Lahore. He continued that there were plans to extend the system to six additional cities soon.

The CEO pointed out that the system would potentially help in conserving railway’s resources and minimise fuel wastage.

He further emphasised the system's capability to significantly reduce the likelihood of fuel theft.
