DPR Sets a 24hour Surveilance Monitoring Team
The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) wishes to inform the General Public that it has set up a 24hours surveillance monitoring team of Petrol Stations nationwide to ensure unhindered sale of Petroleum Products at government regulated prices.
This is in response to reported cases of panic buying in some Petrol Stations across the country.
The DPR wishes to state that the current stock level of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) in depots nationwide is about 365million litres and we are also expecting over 800million seaborne litres to be discharged before the end of the week. This translates to a stock level for thirty (30) days’ supply.
To further ensure the supply of products, DPR has fast tracked the grant of product import permits and vessel clearing process to aid rapid stock build up for importers.
We hereby appeal to all Depots and Petroleum Product Retail Outlets nationwide to ensure that products are sold at government regulated price as the DPR will not hesitate to enforce necessary sanctions against any erring marketer.
The General Public is hereby advised not to engage in panic buying as there is adequate supply of petroleum Products nationwide.
