NNPC names MRS, Oando, Duke Oil and Emadeb as suppliers of bad petrol


The Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited has named four companies responsible for importing bad petrol into the country which has led to an acute shortage of the product across the country.

The companies, the importing vessels and the product origin were listed as: MRS (MT Bow Pioneer LITASCO Terminal, Antwerp-Belgium); Emadeb/Hyde/AY Maikifi/Brittania-U Consortium (MT Tom Hilde – LITASCO Terminal, Antwerp-Belgium); Oando (MT Elka Apollon -LITASCO Terminal, Antwerp-Belgium); and Duke Oil (MT Nord Gainer-LITASCO Terminal, Antwerp-Belgium).

Duke Oil is a subsidiary of the NNPC Limited.

A statement by the Corporation this morning, however, reassured Nigerians of its capacity to restore sanity in the supply and distribution of quality Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) also known as petrol across the country within a short period.
