S.Africa's petroleum industry body says enough supplies to meet demand

CAPE TOWN, July 14 (Reuters) - South Africa's petroleum industry body SAPIA said on Wednesday supplies of petroleum products are "currently stable" after the country's main refinery in Durban shut down due to widespread looting.

"SAPIA is actively engaging with the (government) to ensure that adequate supply to the market is maintained," the South African Petroleum Industry Association said in a statement.

SAPIA represents major refinery operators, such as BP and Shell, in Africa's most advanced economy which is a net importer of petroleum products. (Reporting by Wendell Roelf Editing by Promit Mukherjee)
