France Wants Traders to Return Millions of Barrels of Diesel Soon

France is looking to replenish its stockpiles of diesel in coming months, another move by a European country to shore up supplies as winter approaches.

The French government wants companies to replenish fuel inventories that were released around June as part of a globally co-ordinated stock-draw. The idea is to refill during October and November, a person familiar with the matter said, without specifying a volume. A spokeswoman for France’s Ministry for Energy Transition confirmed the request.
