LONDON (Reuters) - Global fuel demand has not significantly changed so far in the fourth quarter of the year as the recovery from the coronavirus epidemic remains slow, BP’s Chief Financial Officer said on Tuesday.

BP’s refining operations remain at around 80% of capacity while fuel sales are still 15% lower than pre-epidemic levels, Murray Auchincloss told Reuters.
