Pakistan Oil Marketing Companies (OMC’s) recorded sales of 1.39mn tons, the highest in 9 months, up 7% YoY and 26% MoM in May 2024, led by an increase in diesel sales by 18% YoY. This takes 11MFY24 sales to 13.8mn tons, down 9% YoY.

Product-wise, diesel sales improved significantly by posting growth of 18% YoY to 643k tons due to the harvesting season and a drop in prices of Rs16.3/litre in the month of May.

Furthermore, a crackdown on the smuggling of petroleum products has also resulted in some recovery of HSD sales, as per our channel checks.

Motor Spirit (MS) sales were up 1% YoY and 14% MoM to 607K tons, taking 11MFY24 sales to 6.4mn tons, down 5% YoY. Petrol Prices also saw a drop of Rs20.84/litre in May 2024.

FO sales for May-2024 fell by 29% YoY to 69K tons. This decrease is attributed to lower power generation from FO-based power plants.

The government has achieved its PDL revenue collection target: The government set a Petroleum Development Levy (PDL) collection target of Rs 869 bn for FY24, which was met in 11MFY24, crossing Rs907 bn, based on our calculation.
