Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc) will act to stop the resale and smuggling of diesel sold at its stations, pan-Arab newspaper Al Hayat said yesterday.
The move was aimed at preventing diesel from its pumps being sold on to other areas within the United Arab Emirates and smuggled to neighbouring countries.
Adnoc will issue prepaid cards to ensure that customers will get equal amounts of diesel, the paper said.
Construction sector customers and those purchasing diesel for generators and heavy machinery will need to provide identification papers stating the quantities needed.
The UAE is the world's fourth largest oil exporter, pumping 2.5 million barrels per day, with petrol consumption around five million litres per day.
