STORM Alert - Florence Impact on Regional Fuel Supply

Fuel Supply Notice (Wednesday, September 12): Hurricane Florence continues to move toward the Carolinas and deteriorating conditions are still expected for much of the Southeast. Mandatory evacuations throughout the region have spiked demand for fuel in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia causing significant strain on the fuel supply chain.



Though our teams continue to work around the clock, in spots there are not enough delivery assets to keep up with the increasing demand. In addition, fuel terminals from Georgia to Virginia are considering closures based on weather conditions, which will further add to the availability of supply.   We strongly recommend you closely monitor fuel usage and take as many fuel savings measures as possible. For those with underground or above ground fuel storage, there are a number of additional things you can do to ensure the security and the viability of your fuel operations. For example: 



  • Record tank gauge readings before you take tanks out of service.
  • Check fill caps and adapters and make sure they are locked in place.
  • Check all other openings where water could enter, including the interstitial space of a double wall tank.

 on how to safeguard your fuel islands and tanks, and how to safely resume business operations. For further questions, contact your PAPCO | World Fuel Services sales representative and look for updates posted on our website blog and Fuel Market Daily email.



Thank you. Your PAPCO | World Fuel Services team
