The RECOPE, the national refinery that does not refine anything, says has optimal inventory levels and sales logistics that ensure the continuity of operations in the event of an indefinite national strike that is to start on Monday, September 10.

Faced with the call to strike of public sector unions, RECOPE says it has activated protocols for contingency situations to guarantee the supply of fuels throughout the country.

As a preventive measure, the sales schedule will be extended on Saturday and Sunday in all distribution centers. This in order that the service stations are supplied and can meet the demand and thus avoid lineups at gas stations.

Citizens are urged to remain calm and not store fuel in containers in their homes or businesses that put the safety of people and their property at risk, the RECOPE said in a statement.
