Purchases of crude oil and petroleum products

Volumes maintained by SAGESS are set by the Comité Professionnel des Stocks Stratégiques Pétroliers (CPSSP), since the creation of the organization in 1993. They are defined in quality and quantity by the CPSSP. 

SAGESS's purchases of crude oil and refined products are made by international tenders posted on its business portal. Subject to certain conditions of validity, this bidding process allows the selection of the offer with the lowest price.
