Brinland - LRT - 3.1 Brinland Fuel

Fuel Overview

Brinland relies almost entirely on Northland for the provision of fuel (both countries have signed a commercial agreement giving the exclusivity to Northland for providing oil through subterranean pipe).

Brinland Oil Corporation (BOC) is the sole importer of fuels in Brinland. It is a government owned agency for all Brinland and was established on 1970. It imports, stores and distributes all kinds of fuel in Brinland.

The Democratic Republic of Brinland owns 90.15% of BOC with the balance shared by four other state-owned enterprises, those being Cobalt Supplies, National Trading Ltd., Brinland Bank Ltd. and Emerald Bank. BOC has 4 regional offices with fuel depots in Brinland: Brindisi, Dakaro, Allon, and Bekario. The total storage capacity throughout Brinland is 65,500 kilolitres (2014)

BOC then distributes its petroleum products to various government or privately owned companies to be distributed to consumers. 

Approximately, 60% of its fuel storage is consumed by the eastern region of Brinland.

The Government of Brinland does not provide any price subsidies for fuel. The price of fuel includes a 13 percent VAT as of July 2016.

Seasonal Variations 

Because of payment delays and because of its geographical structure, Brinland has fuel shortages very often.

Mostly, landslides and floods every winter season block the main supply roads that reach many depots or distributors.

Seasonal Variations

Are there national priorities in the availability of fuel, e.g. are there restrictions or priorities for the provision of fuel such as to the military? (Yes / No)


Is there a rationing system? (Yes / No)


Is fuel to lower income/vulnerable groups subsidized? (Yes / No)


Can the local industry expand fuel supply to meet humanitarian needs? (Yes / No)


Is it possible for a humanitarian organization to contract directly a reputable supplier/distributor to provide its fuel needs? (Yes / No)


Fuel Transportation

Fuel products are supplied to BOC-approved distributors upon request.

All aviation fuel (Jet A-1) is distributed and sold directly by BOC in order to adhere to stringent quality control measures. BOC uses over 700 tanker trucks to transport and distribute their products. 

The Brinland Oil Corporation (BOC) imports all of its fuel requirements from the Northland Oil Corporation (NOC) through a long-term agreement. It is reported that NOC has approximately 55% of the Northland fuel market share and owns 6 of Norhtland’s 11 refineries. Fuel is mainly transported into Brinland by subterranean "Monopoly" to Carreti. There are plans to construct a second pipeline from Monopoly, Northland to the BOC depot of Brindisi but no start date has been set.

The transportation infrastructure and fleet are sufficient to handle current domestic needs as well as increased demand from the humanitarian community.

Standards, Quality and Testing

BOC has a Quality and Pollution Control Department equipped with facilities for testing the quality standards of its petroleum products.

Laboratory testing is regularly carried out and quality norms are strictly enforced. All incoming products as well as delivered fuel to the distributors are fully tested. As an example, two samples of each delivery transported to distributors are taken. One is kept with the distributor and the second is held by BOC Quality Control. Spot surprise checks are made on the distributor to ensure there is no alteration of product. Brindisi has a significant level of air pollution, mainly caused by old diesel enging vehicles.

To safeguard the health of the population, especially that of children, BOC has already made arrangements to supply unleaded petrol in Brinland.
