Fuel scarcity: NNPC issues distribution details for petrol

The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Ltd, NNPC, has provided information of how it dispersed a total of 387.59 million litres of Premium Motor Spirit, PMS, in one week to bridge the gap left by the withdrawal of methanol-blended petrol into the nation. 

According to the NNPC, the fuel was delivered to Nigerians through retail filling stations on an average daily basis of 55.4 million gallons from February 14 to February 20, 2022. 

According to a breakdown of the NNPC weekly national evacuation report issued yesterday, 80% of all PMS occurred at 20 high loading stations, while 20% occurred at other loading depots. 

Pinnacle-Lekki evacuated the biggest amount of 70.8 million litres, according to the NNPC, followed by NIPCO (22.6 million litres), AITEO (22.3 million litres), Swift (16 million litres), 11 PLC (15.9 million litres), Bovas Bulk (15 million litres), and Frado (15 million litres (14.6 million litres).
