Petroleum Minister discusses means of increasing and maintaining production

DAMASCUS– Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources Saiid Hneidi discussed on Sunday with heads of petroleum workers' trade unions means for increasing and maintaining production and dealing with difficulties facing workers.

Discussions focused on workers' demands and the difficulties hindering their work, in addition to issues related to equipment maintenance, increasing workers' compensation, extending contracts, exchanging technical expertise, and increasing fuel allocations for some provinces.

Minister Hneidi noted that the petroleum sector was targeted heavily by terrorists due to its importance and impact on national economy and citizens' livelihood, while some countries targeted this sector through sanctions, affirming that his Ministry is exerting huge efforts to circumvent these sanctions.

He lauded the efforts of workers in the petroleum sector who are working around the clock under the difficult circumstances to maintain production and provide citizens' fuel requirements.

The Minister also affirmed that all the points raised in the meeting will be studied and the applicable suggestions will be implemented, and that other issues such as the difficulty some workers are facing in reaching their workplaces due to terrorism will also be tackled.
