Briefly.. country wide availability will still be a challenge and personaly I think its not coming to each and every pump. The availability of 92 will become more on big city pumps where currently it comes once a week or once in 2 weeks..
"Under the agreement, the 87 RON petrol would now improve to 92 RON while High Octane Blending Component of 95 RON at present would be replaced with 97 RON HOBC. All the OMCs will be allowed HOBC imports.
In view of the technological challenge, the government has now agreed to allow local refineries to continue with their existing operations, but marketing companies would be required to import high grade gasolines to upgrade locally produced petrol.
“Each refinery will opt for producing 87 RON/90 RON as per their own configuration and limitations,” a senior government official said, quoting an agreement initialed by the oil industry.
Except for Attock Refinery Limited in Rawalpindi – the only petroleum refining facility in the northern region – “all other refineries have agreed to produce 90 RON.”
This would be further improved to 92 RON with even better grade imports.
“The OMCs will ensure upliftment of local refinery product first as per the prevailing policy, irrespective of difference of RON,” added the agreement.
ARL would not change its configuration because it would incur an additional loss of about $75 per tonne of naphtha transportation and handling to Karachi for subsequent export.
“Producing 90 RON (for ARL) mean that its premier motor gasoline production will reduce by 12,000 tonnes per month and naphtha production will correspondingly go up,” the official explained"
