Oil smuggling at sea plunging


Wichit Chantanusornsiri


       Thai authorities said yesterday that tighter controls and enforcement measures …..40….. petrol and oil smuggling have begun to show results.


       Metta Banturngsuk, director – general of the Energy Policy and Planning office, said oil smuggling through marine craft had been “nearly eliminated” …..41….. tighter controls and a pilot programme  …..42….. local fishing fleets.


      He noted that domestic fuel sales volume ….43…. 11.5% year – on – year during the first four months of the year.


      While the increase was in part due to strong economic growth and rising automotive sales, Mr. Metta said ….44…. factor for the increase in local fuel sales …..45….. the clampdown against the smugglers’ traditional supply sources.


     Fuel smuggling has long been a problem for local law enforcement, as buyers seek to take advantage of the …..46…..  cost savings available from smuggled fuel …..47….. tax discrepancies.


     Diesel fuel …..48….. for just eight baht a litre in Malaysia, compared with 14 bath in Thailand


     Mr. Metta said Malaysia authorities were now ......49....... clampingdown on Thaistravelling over the border to take advantage of cheaper fuel prices.


   Thai-regirtered cars in Malaysia now are limited to …..50…..  no more than 25 litres per vehicle, he said.


    Maritime smuggling had also declined after the authorities launched a programme offering ….51….. to  fishing fleets for use outside of the country’s  sovereign limits. Fuel sales to the fishing industry are now estimated …..52….. 100 million litres per month, very near the estimated actual demand.


     Police said that from October to May. 618 charges of fuel smuggling were filed …..53….. 1.12 million litres of fuel worth 155 million bahts.
