Good news, but who questions the deputy for Reunion Frédéric Maillot (Democratic and Republican left - Nuts) who wonders if the overseas will be affected by the discount.

The cargo of 28,000 metric tonnes was intended in Nigeria, but, for fear of shortage in Kinshasa, the DRC authorities "diverted" it in order to constitute a strategic stock. On the compliance of the product, they do not contradict the Congolese control office, but announce that the product will be reconditioned.

Olivier Kasongo, the director of Cobil, the public fuel sales company, explains the situation: “Each country has its specifications. This product was essentially intended for Nigeria and the specification of this country with regard to sulfur, it is 500 points, the Congo is 300. "

" We cannot say that this product poses problem "

"To ensure transparency," he continues, "what we asked for the supplier was clear that he had to recondition the product. We cannot say that this product is problematic. There are more than 15 or 20 parameters that we analyze in an petroleum product, it is just a small parameter among others and we cannot ignite social networks because of this. "
