Why PVN can’t buy oil at “bottom price” for reserve?

According to Vietnam Oil and Gas Group (PVN), it is not feasible to buy oil with “bottom price” because we do not yet have mechanisms and policies on risks for this activity (buying oil at “bottom price” leads to losses). On the other hand, at present, in Vietnam there are no national oil reserve depots, while the crude oil storages of Dung Quat and Nghi Son refinery plants can only meet production needs of these plants. It is also not feasible to rent an oil tanker (at least at this time), because of difficulty of our financial potential.
