According to the statement, the agreement with the companies was designed to boost the supply of refined petroleum products across the country.

It said that the 'stop-gap OPA' arrangement, designed to run for three months, obliges the corporation to allocate a certain volume of crude oil within the period for refining at offshore locations.

The statement said that the temporary OPA agreement would lapse with the advent of a fresh OPA contracts being envisaged which would take effect at the end of the ongoing public tender process.

It noted that the OPA arrangement would help augment in-country production of refined petroleum products from the nation’s refineries to meet local demand.
