There?ll be no fuel supply shortfall again this year - NNPCL

The CEO of Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited, Mele Kyari, said there would be no shortage in the supply of petroleum products again this year.

Kyari gave the assurance during a meeting with the Senate leadership on Wednesday, November 22. He told the Senate President, Godswill Akpabio and other Senate leaders that the NNPCL has the capacity to ensure constant supply of petrol until next January.

“We have robust supply plants from now until next year; We always plan three months. And I assure you, Your Excellency, that we will not see shortages in our country. You may see a series of scattered gas station reports that people will call queues. They are not.

Kyari further revealed that the Port Harcourt refinery would come into operation in December, followed by the Warri refinery commencing in the first quarter of 2024.

While reaffirming concern over the poor state of the gas pipeline network across the country, Kyari said his leadership was determined to restore sanity to the gas pipeline distribution chain.

“All the ongoing activities and commitments, with the support of the President around how to curb the issues of infringements in our pipelines, the actions of vandals that we have obtained the support of the Senate to ensure that something is done about it, bring keep it to a minimum; so that the pipelines are restored, so that we can continue to increase production, and investor confidence so that no one produces oil when they are not sure of producing oil for the future market.” he said
