The Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited says it has put in place a robust plan for the supply of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), also known as petrol, from mid-February to March.
The company’s Chief Corporate Communications Officer, Garba Deen Muhammad, noted in a statement on Monday that the plan is part of its concerted efforts to sustain the supply of petroleum products nationwide.
“Latest updates released on Monday show that NNPC Limited has a total of 1.805 billion litres of PMS stock, representing 805.35 million litres in all the land depots nationwide and 1,000.20 million litres on marine vessels, which is equivalent to 30.09 days’ sufficiency,” the statement reads in part.
“An additional PMS supply of 884 million litres is also expected to enter the country by February 28, 2023. ” For March 2023, a total of 2.3 billion litres of PMS is expected to enter the country, while about 2.5 billion liters, which is equivalent to 42 days’ sufficiency, will be the closing stock for the month under review.
NNPC assured motorists that it has adequate and sufficient volumes at all land depots as well as marine vessels.
The company added that, as the provider of energy security for the country, it would continue to sustain the availability of petroleum products across the country.
