WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. officials have warned energy companies to be on the alert for "potential terrorist activities" at fuel storage plants but there were no immediate threats, an oil industry group told members on Friday.

The Petroleum Marketers Association of America told members the Federal Bureau of Investigation "is concerned about terrorists attempting to purchase or steal fuel from a bulk plant to use in a weapon of mass destruction."

The PMAA said it sent members a message on Friday after the FBI handed out the warning at an energy conference last week ahead of the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington.

The FBI had no immediate comment. Read more via Global Post...
