The Major Oil Marketers Association of Nigeria (MOMAN) is partnering with the Nigeria National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited to improve the distribution of petrol in Nigeria.
Mr Clement Isong, Chief Executive Officer of MOMAN, explained that the development became necessary following the current scarcity of petrol and long queues at filling stations.
According to him, the association had been holding a daily logistic emergency meeting with the downstream management of NNPCL on how to improve the supply of petrol.
He explained that the partnership with NNPCL will enhance the distribution of petroleum products in the country.
He added: “We are doing depot to depot check-in and check-out to enhance efficiency, also having logistic supply meetings with NNPCL. There is also collaboration among our members to cushion supply to various MOMAN’s stations.
“We arranged it in a way that any MOMAN member who does not have product can pick from fellow members’ depot to minimise supply gaps,” he said.
He added that the effort was to improve the supply of petrol at filling stations across the country.
