JUST-IN: Major Marketers To End Petrol Scarcity, Take Delivery Of 300m Litres

The Major Energy Marketers Association of Nigeria (MEMAN) has now confirmed availability of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), also called petrol, and was working with key stakeholders to end the present product delivery glitch.

In a statement in Lagos, MEMAN, said: “Our members in Apapa and other locations in Lagos are taking product from 8 vessels this week with over 300 million litres of PMS, well above our normal levels.

“We are actively coordinating with our member companies through swaps and other supply arrangements to ensure member stations remain stocked.

“Our depots will extend their loading times to ensure we load out as much as we can including tomorrow the 1st of May 2024.

“Our partners in NARTO & PTD have assured us of their support in ensuring the product gets to the retail outlets safely and quickly. We also will extend the opening times of selected retail outlets to ensure we can service our customers as long and as safely
possible.

“Independent marketers (depots & stations) are being allocated additional PMS to alleviate the situation.

“We expect the situation to improve in the coming days as supply chains adjust and stabilize.”

While empathising with Nigerians over the return of fuel queues across the country, MEMAN said it remained committed to keeping the public informed and providing timely updates.

“MEMAN deeply empathizes with
Nigerians facing the challenges occasioned by the current availability of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) and the resulting queues at many retail outlets.

“We can see the frustration
and difficulties this situation is creating.
The Downstream Regulator, NMDPRA and other key stakeholders across the supply chain are fully engaged and supportive to eliminate the queues as swiftly as possible.

“Our top priority is to restore stability and ensure that fuel supplies reach all depots and retail outlets across Nigeria promptly. While the current situation has been challenging, we want to reassure the public that there is an adequate supply of PMS available,” the association confirmed.
