Ethiopia Fuel

Ethiopia consumes daily one million liters of benzene, 6.5 million liters of diesel and two million liters of jet fuel. The annual kerosene consumption is 260,000 metric tons. The consumption of kerosene is dwindling as the public is using electric stoves instead of kerosene ones. The country has 13 fuel depots in different parts of the country that can store 360,000 cubic meters of petroleum products.   

Local supply (domestic refinery production and imports combined) does meet the needs of the country, especially for aviation and ground fuels. There are some national priorities in the availability of fuel but the local industry can expand the fuel supply to meet the needs of humanitarian organisations. It is also possible for humanitarian organizations to contract a reputable supplier/distributor directly to provide its fuel needs.
