Measures such as avoiding transportation of oil and gas at night are planned for the expected shutdown of Bangkok by anti-government protesters, in order to prevent an energy supply and services disruption, says the Energy Ministry. 

The ministry called a meeting of policymakers on Monday to discuss logistics management of oil, gas, and electricity, to ensure an adequate supply is available during a shutdown.

Suthep Liumsirijareon, the permanent secretary for energy, said the ministry is in talks with the Transport Ministry to change the planned oil and gas transportation to the daytime to minimise the risk of the fleet being seized and used as a weapon.
