Nigeria sees petroleum products scarcity in south-west

Oct 13, 2005 02:00 AM

Scarcity of petroleum products in western parts of Nigeria looms following a rupture in the import pipeline grid of the Petroleum Pipelines Monitoring Company (PPMC) at Akute in Ogun State.
The pipeline, which burst five meters below waterbed at Akute has already led to suspension of pumping of supplies from Atlas cove jetty of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) in Lagos to its major storage depot at Mosimi also in Ogun State.

Directorate of Petroleum Resources (DPR) sources however told that deliberate vandalisation has been ruled out as cause of the problem. From corporate headquarters of NNPC at Abuja it was gathered that several million litres of the premium motor spirit have been lost.
Curiosity was aroused at PPMC when a huge gap developed in the quantity of products pumped from Atlas core and the actual volumes received at Mosimi depot.
