Fuel queues resurface, as NNPCL blames logistics and flooding

Written by on July 9, 2024

The Nigerian Petroleum Company Limited, NNPCL, is blaming resurfacing of fuel queues in some parts of the country on the disruption of ship-to-ship, STS transfer of Premium Motor Spirit, PMS, also known as petrol, between Mother Vessels and Daughter Vessels resulting from recent thunderstorm.

A statement by the company’s Chief Corporate Communications Officer, Olufemi Soneye, today, says the adverse weather condition has also affected berthing at jetties, truck load-outs and transportation of products to filling stations, disrupting station supply logistics.

The clarification comes following reports of long fuel queues in Lagos, Abuja and other parts of the country, pushing prices to as high as ₦900/liter, with private depot owners reported to have hiked the ex-depot price from ₦630 to ₦720 per liter.
