News Update: No more increase in Petrol Price – NNPC

Published

on

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has said that the recent increase in bridging allowance to transporters from N6.20 to N7.20 per litre will not lead to an increase in the pump price of petrol from the prevailing price of N145 per litre.

Chief Operating Officer (COO) in charge of downstream operations of the Corporation, Mr. Henry Ikem Obih, provided the clarification in Abuja on Wednesday.

According to a statement by spokesman of the corporation, Obih said there was no plan by the government or any of its agencies to review the pump price of petrol above N145 per litre.

He explained that the rise in the bridging cost was achieved after an adjustment was made in the “lightering expenses” from N4 to N3 per litre and the difference transferred to compensate for the cost of bridging within the same template.

The bridging allowance refers to the cost element built into the products pricing template to ensure a uniform price of petrol across the country, while lightering expenses involve charges for moving products to depot area from mother vessels by light vessels due to the inability of the former to berth in shallow water depth.

“What happened, in simple language, is a rebalancing of the margins allowed and approved for stakeholders. So what the Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency (PPPRA) did was to take N1 from lightering expenses and add same to the bridging allowance. That is how we arrived at N7.20. Therefore, PMS remains at the ceiling of N145 per litre,” he said.

On the availability of product supply, the COO said as at today, the country had 1.3billion litres of petrol which translated to an inventory of 36 days.

What this means is that even if we stop importation or refining of petrol right now, we have enough products in-country to provide for the needs of every Nigerian for a period of 36 days,” he said.

Obih noted that the supply availability was bolstered with the production of petrol from the three refineries located in Port Harcourt, Warri and Kaduna.
