Lebanon energy ministry delays petrol tender one week

BEIRUT, Dec 2 (Reuters) - Lebanon’s caretaker Energy Minister Nada Boustani delayed on Monday a fuel tender by one week to allow for more competition and better prices after receiving offers from two companies.

The ministry is trialing a tender to import 150,000 tonnes of 95 octane gasoline in an effort to stave off potential supply shortages during Lebanon’s worst economic crisis in decades. (Reporting by Ellen Francis; Editing by Alison Williams)
